Pasargadae Official Website Launched

An official website for Pasargadae world heritage site was launched early this week to provide the latest information on the ancient monument.
As reported by Fars Province's Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization, the news portal, available at www.pasargadae.ir, offers the latest information about the world-renowned historical site both in Persian and English.
"The contents of the website include elaborate information on the historical and touristic values of the site, as well as latest news and announcements," Hamid Fadaei, director of the world heritage site, was quoted as saying by Mehr News Agency.
Access to relevant publications, media content, electronic guide to the historical site and information on Fars Province's local art and culture are also available on the website.
According to the official, the website could contribute to research and archeological projects and protection measures taken in the zone.
"A separate section, providing access to an archive for archeological documents as well as French and Italian versions will soon be added to the website," he added.
Located outside the historical city of Shiraz, Pasargadae served as the Achaemenid Empire’s capital under Cyrus the Great in 6th century BC.
The site, which also hosts the Tomb of Cyrus, was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2004 during the World Heritage Committee’s 28th session in Suzhou, China.
