The Private Palace of Cyrus the Great
Pasargadae

Pasargadae (Persian: پاسارگاد) was a city in ancient Persia. According to the Elamite cuneiform of the Persepolis fortification tablets the name was rendered as Batrakataš, and the name in current usage derives from a Greek transliteration of an Old Persian Pâthragâda toponym of still-uncertain meaning.
