Overview

Pasargad, Persepolis & Necropolis Tour

The ancient gardens of Pasargad, one of Iran’s fascinating Unesco World Heritage sites, are reached easily by car from Shiraz. Pasargad was the site of royal gardens and palaces, nowadays the remains of this palatial complex are magnificently visible. The first place we visit is the tomb of Cyrus, the most intact monument in Pasargad. It includes large cubes of white stones lying over each other like stairs and there’s also a cubic construction on the top.
In the center of the area, the remains of several palaces with four gardens exist. The palaces had main halls with tall pillars. Even after 2500 years, it’s astonishingly glorious and you can imagine when Cyrus, the Great King walked through this elegant set. While visiting the different parts of the sight, you can also enjoy local food in the village and admire regionally produced handicrafts.
The next stop is Persepolis, the ceremonial capital of the greatest Empire. Darius the Great began establishing this new capital in 519 BC and later his successors added to this rich splendor over the years. You will observe the remarkable remain of official palaces. By watching the noble high reliefs, towering gates and pillars, you will stand in awe and wonder how they made all these that time.
The magnificent Necropolis (Naqsh-e Rustam) is only a short distance from the glories of Persepolis, so consider visiting the tombs of the kings after we’ve explored the city of the Persians. This stunning ancient site contains four tombs carved into the rock face, at a great height. Four tombs each originally containing the sarcophagus of an Achaemenid king and they lie behind the cross-shaped entrance, high above the ground.
At Naqsh-e Rustam you can also admire the splendid Ka’ba-ye Zartosht (Cube of Zoroaster), a 5th century BCE Achaemenid square tower.
Note: Remember to bring your camera, hat & sunscreen cream.
