The first of 3 archaelogical sites we visited on the way from Yazd to Shiraz. This is probably the most underwhelming but it was a nice stroll anyway at the huge archaelogical sites, imagining what should have been an impressive sites.

From my opinion it is not worth the long ride. Its a huge site, but against Persepolis there is very little remaining. The tomb is the only well maintained part, but I would not come here to see it just because of that. We have...More

Nice place with great historical value. Unfortunately it is not fully prepared for tourists. Lack of information about place. Just tomb in the middle of the desert.

Great because of his wisdom and human rights record. History that dates back 2500 years. How small we are, how little we know. To stand at the tomb of this great king and reflect on humankind, was a humbling experience.

I didn't like it as much as I expected. It's a beautiful ancient tomb and some ruins around it, but with a devastated view due to many modern facilities around, way too touristy, but I'm happy I visited it due to my passion for history.

An exception in world. The oldest Persian garden and royal zone of Cyrus the great. Severely suggested attraction to visit

we had an individual tour with own car, but if not of course the taxi is the best, nearly the only way to come there. just fix the price in advance.
