Cyrus and Takhtejamshid

The Achaemenid era is one of the brightest periods in the history of Iran and the world. Cyrus was the founder of the Achaemenid dynasty, who is described in the Torah as the savior of the Jewish people by the yoke of Babylonian captivity.
Xenophon, the fourth-century BC Greek historian, introduced him as a wise, arrogant, and right-wing man who fascinated everyone.
Cyrus, who was, in fact, the prince of the Persian tribes in the sixth century BC, was able to establish the largest empire in the world, with the extraordinary intelligence of the Aryan tribes.
Loving the greenery, he chose Pasargadae as the capital and made it a beautifully landscaped garden known as Campus. It was then that the words "Ferdows" in Arabic and "Paradise" in English were derived from the word.
Cyrus, after the conquest of Babylon, which was a very important event in his time, issued a proclamation that today constitutes the first human rights charter. His son Darius also adhered to the principles of the Declaration when he succeeded in making the throne, and his successors, Khashayarshah and Ardashir I, who collaborated in the construction of the throne, installed the charter on a throne in honor of Cyrus.

Is Darius the architect of Takhte Jamshid?

The construction of Rakhte Jamshid, one of the world's tallest monuments, was started by Darius some 2,000 years ago and continued by his successors, with changes to its original structure.
According to the clay of the inscriptions found there, all those who worked at Persepolis were paid and were insured at the time, and it is interesting that even women participated in Persepolis.
Construction of Persepolis took 50 years, during which time architects and artists from all over Iran came together to create a building with their own unique materials and techniques that neither had nor exemplified at that time nor at any other time.
