Tomb Cyrus the Great

Persian ruler and deliverer of Israel, this well documented Persian king freed the Jews from Babylonian captivity, as prophesied by the prophet Isaiah some 150 years prior.

Isaiah 44:28

(KJV)

28 That saith of Cyrus, He is my shepherd, and shall perform all my pleasure: even saying to Jerusalem, Thou shalt be built; and to the temple, Thy foundation shall be laid.”
