Pasargad(Cyrus Tomb), Persepolis & Necropolis
Duration: 1 day
Trip Dates: All year round
The ancient gardens of Pasargad, another of Iran’s fascinating Unesco World Heritage sites, are reached easily by car from Shiraz, but we do recommend an early start for this two hour journey.
Pasargad was the site of royal gardens and palaces, and today you can also enjoy local food in the village and admire regionally produced handicrafts.
We will first visit the tomb of Cyrus the Great of Persia, the founder of the ancient empire, and when you are ready, move on to admire remains of the gardens and palaces.
Remotely located in the mountains and hard to reach in ancient times, Persepolis, the ceremonial capital and masterpiece of the Persian Empire, is now only a pleasant drive away from the vibrant and historic city of Shiraz. Construction of this new capital began in 518 BC at the order of Darius the Great, and his successors added to its riches and splendor over the years.
The magnificent Necropolis 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, lie behind the cross-shaped entrance, high above the ground.
Here at Naqsh-e Rustam you can also admire the splendid Ka’ba-ye Zartosht (Cube of Zoroaster), a 5th century BCE Achaemenid square tower.
