The Persian Achaemenid Empire was founded by Cyrus the great in 550 B.C. and defeated by Alexander in 330 B.C.
Extending from Anatolia and Egypt across western Asia to northern India and Central Asia it is known as a vast multicultural empire, ruled by Persians.

According to UNESCO (http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/1106), one of the unique characterizations of this Persian Empire is the respect they show to different culture and religion of people of their territory.

The vast Empire of Achaemenid


For example when Zoroastrian Cyrus the Great defeated Babylon, he respected the religion of the place and even tried not to harm this city of a great culture.
In later time we have even people of other religion in Persian court of King Xerxes (486-465 BC).
Achaemenid Dynasty also appreciated the art of other civilization like Mesopotamian, and mixed those arts with Persians in constructing their huge capitals.

Tomb of Cyrus the Great (559-29 B.C.)
The first capital of this vast Empire is Pasargadae. This city is also a UNESCO World Heritage because it is "the first phase of royal Achaemenid art and architecture and also exceptional testimonies of Persian civilization".
