Back to index

2500 Years Celebrations of The Persian Empire was held on 1971 at Persepolis, Pasargad, Tent City and Shiraz. Events included: Arrivals at airport; Celebrations in the streets; Banquets at Tent City; Light and Sound Show at Persepolis; Military Parade of the Iranian Dynasties' Military Units throughout the 2500 Years of Iranian history at Persepolis; Tribute to Cyrus The Great, starter of the Persian Empire at Pasargad; Receptions at Tent City and other Ceremonies. Guests were World's heads of states, heads of governments, Royalties, World and Iranian government officials and an Elite Iranian Guest List by invitation only. This event was one of the most glorious celebrations in history of Iran. This event was once in a lifetime extravaganza. I have well-kept and still own and cherish my 2500 Celebrations Parade Guide, Uniform Guide, Plate and other Memorabilias from this event. Cyrus, rest in peace, thus we are awake ……
