Tomb of Cyrus
Tomb of Cyrus the Achaemenian tomb of Cyrus II, known as Cyrus the Great or Cyrus the Great, but unadorned building with unique architecture, is at a distance of about one kilometer southwest of the palaces of Pasargadae.
It's all plain (Murghab) is visible, especially if you're from the Southwest through the ancient passages and straits (rhetorical) we enter the desert, the first thing that attracted my attention is the tomb of Cyrus. The work in 2004 as the Pasargadae World Heritage Site is registered under No. 1106.

The tomb of Cyrus in Pasargadae is the only building that has been described in Greek references.

The earliest descriptions of the tomb of Cyrus can be defined (Aristobulus of Cassandreia), one of the companions of Alexander the Macedonian in the territory of the Achaemenid campaign by band name in the book (Anabasis), Alexander has recorded thus:
Lower part of the tomb stones that formed the shape of a rectangular square cut and formed.
On the mausoleum is a stone room, a roof and a door so narrow and short that a man could hardly be in the room.
Inside the room there was a golden casket placed inside the body of Cyrus. Gold also the underlying basis of a bench beside the coffin. A Babylonian curtain covering it (presumably bench) and the floor was covered with carpet. A cape sleeves and other clothing on the Babylonian respectively. Pants and clothes (material) were found in the room, some were black and some other colors. Necklace, sword, stone earrings with gold ornaments and a table in the room. Cyrus coffin was placed between the table and the couch. In the tomb area, there was a small building for Clergymen who were tasked with keeping the Tomb of Cyrus.
