Iran's Fars Province will celebrate the birthday of the Persian king, Cyrus the Great, in the 1st Achaemenid capital of Persepolis.

The ceremony will be held to highlight the historical magnificence of Persepolis and examine the numerous existing legends about Cyrus.

The event will be attended by researchers and historians who will deliver speeches about the history of Fars Province and the Achaemenid dynasty.

Cyrus the Great (529-580 BC) united the two original Iranian Tribes- the Medes and the Persians.

Cyrus is best remembered for his great tolerance and noble attitude towards the conquered nations. He is also famous for the declaration of the first Charter of Human Rights.

He is buried in Pasargade, 70 kilometers north of Persepolis in Fars.
