The Pasargadae is located in a plateau with a height of 1,900 meters above sea level, in the fence of the mountains. From the evidence given by the Greek and Roman historians, it is obvious that Pasargadae was built by Cyrus the Great.

This theory becomes steadier due to several reasons. First; the Mausoleum of Cyrus the Great was built by his order, in terms of map designing and usage of symbolization, there is a connection between the Pasargadae grand garden and the Gate of All Nations Palace.

It shows us that the designer of all of these structures was one person, and those palaces were also the result of the artistic tact of Cyrus the Great.
