Cyrus The Great, Father of Persia

I am Cyrus…King of the universe…Great King…Mighty King…King of Babylon…King of Akkadians…King of the four corners of the world.

This is the first sentence of Cyrus the Great in Cyrus Cylinder. The just king of Persia who raised up over 2,500 years ago in Iran, and put a part of the world that always have been in the chaos, in a peace and security that modern humans now have not succeeded in achieving them with all cultural, intellectual, and other ideologies.

 A King that even now all the world knows well of him. A King that has been free of contemplation and speculation in the last 25 centuries is still incredible for the people of the 21 st century.
