The coffin and goods of the tomb were looted in Alexander’s time. Nearby were the remains of an old Caravanserai – the Mozaffarian. It used stones from Cyrus’ palace. We then moved... More

The English word "paradise" has its origins in this now supremely lonely stretch of desert between Isfahan and Iran. In its glory day, this was the final pleasure garden of Cyrus the Great, who established the Persian empire. His imposing tomb is the chief attraction, perched symbolically between earth and heaven, and a stark reminder of the leveling power of... More

There are another 9 remains elements to the site including a caravanserai, Palaces, Garden, hall and a tower. When we were there in Oct 2016 there was active, small... More

It's the Cyrus Tomb, a very great and phenomenal place to visit. Just don't miss this place. This place is near Shiraz so I visited it on my way from Yazd to Shiraz

The tomb itself is simple but is historical. I highly recommend you read book of it, watch DVD or hire a... More
