The Celebrations began with a simple and moving ceremony at the tomb of Cyrus the Great at Pasargad shortly before noon on October 12th, 1971, 2,510 years after the Persian conquest of Babylon in 539 B.C.The Shah and the Empress Farah received their guests in the red damask reception room of the state banqueting tent which dominated the canvas tent city. The roll call of majestic sounding titles, the aides de camp hovering in attendance, the chandeliers hanging high above the tables, the music played from a minstrel's gallery, the gold plated cutlery used by the heads of state all seemed to hark back to a European court of a century or more ago.

Hi Mahdi. In Paris in the '80s, I met many nice Iranian students friends of my children.

I only visited Iran at the time of the Shah, Yekta. I knew Iranian guys who came to study in Paris and were classmates of my children. I had a very good impression of them and of your Country.
