The tomb of Cyrus the Great, the father of all Iranian, Which is belonged to the ancient monument of Pasargadae as the earliest capital of the Achaemenid-first Persian Empire-show the glorious civilization of the nation.

The first capital of the Achaemenid Empire-Pasargadea-lies in ruins 43 kilometers from Persepolis, in Fars province southwestern Iran and today in the small city.

The structure was unfinished because Cyrus died in a battle and he could not finish it as he wanted. The location is currently considered as one of Iran’s most remarkable archaeological site which covers 1.6 square kilometers; its Garden is registered in UNESCO World Heritage site. Pasargadea is an exceptional witness to the Acheamenid civilization, the vast Acheamenid Empire which extended from the eastern Mediterranean and Egypt to the Hindus River in India, is considered the first empire for cultural diversity of its people.

The most prominent monument in Pasargadea, is the mausoleum of Cyrus. Pasargadae represents the first phase of this development into a specifically Persian architecture, and Archaeologists have recently explored that Pasargadae was granted with unique structural engineering as Acheamenid engineers built the city to withstand a severe earthquake what would today be classified as 7.0 on the Richter magnitude scale.

Ernst Hertzfeld, was first archaeologically who explored Pasargadae in 1905.In 1928 Hertzfeld along with his assistant Friedrich Krefter did one excavation season. After Hertzfeld, Sir Aurel Stein completed a site plan for Pasargadae in 1934.Later in 1935 Erich F.Schmidt produced a series of aerial photographs of the entire complex.

In 1930,the Brazilian poet Manuel Banderia published a poem called Vou me embora pra Pasarrgada( I will go away to Pasargadae) in a book titled Libertinagem.
