Goor Dokhtar

Related to Borazjan city (located in Bushehr province) and Dashtestan (Burazjan) city
Goor-e Dokhtar is an ancient tomb located in the province of Bushehr. The structure of 'Goor Dokhtar' (literally the daughter's tomb) is very similar to the mausoleum of Koorush the great (Cyrus II's tomb) in Pasargad (about 600 BC.).

There are some ideas about ordination of it to the Cyrus the Younger (the son of Darius II), Chish Pish or Cyrus I (the forefather of Cyrus the Great), Atusa (the daughter of Cyrus), Mandana (the mother of Cyrus) or the sister of Cyrus the Great due to the lack of any epigraphy on the Goor Dokhtar Monument.

No mortar used in the construction of this building and different parts linked by staples to each other. The remains of Ardeshir palace related to the Sassanid era are seen beside this mausoleum.

This structure is made of 24 slabs of stones, according to the 'Orartoie' and Elamite principles such as the ziggurat of Choqazanbil. This valuable monument is registered on the records of the Cultural Heritage Organization of Iran.
