On October 29, Iranians marked the international day of Cyrus the Great, the ancient ruler of the Persian Empire and the author of the world’s first human rights charter.
Cyrus is held in great regard in Iran for creating the largest empire of civilized nations then known in the world, around 600 years before Christ.
Each year Iranians commemorate this day by gathering at the tomb of Cyrus, in Pasargadae, a UNESCO World Heritage Site to pay respects and celebrate one of his greatest achievements. Our Spanish guests joined Uppersia Persepolis day tour and they were accompanied by Samira to learn more about the greatness of one of the most influential people in history.
