A Short History of Pasargadia

Pasargadia was named after the ancient city of Pasargadae. It had been the capital of that region since the reign of Cyrus the Great. Pasargadae was in the Northwestern corner of the Province and was the center of its interactions in politics and ceremony. It was the sight of one of the oldest Zoroastrian temples near the tomb of Cyrus the Great. However, Pasargadae was not the largest city in the province and this was one of the few provinces where its largest city was not its capital. The center of economic activity was on the twin cities of Kasabae (Khasab) and Gommercium (Bandar-Abbas) each on either side of the Strait of Hormuz (Strata Calaei) which were central ports to the entrance and exit of the Persian Gulf into the ocean.
