Further details of Parsargadae below:

From an article by Jona Lendering
http://www.livius.org/pan-paz/pasargadae/pasarg...
Pasargadae (Old Persian Pâthragâda): oldest of the capitals of the ancient Achaemenid empire, built by the founder of this empire, king Cyrus the Great (559-330 BCE). It resembled a park of 2×3 km in which several monumental buildings were to be seen.

According to the Roman geographer Strabo of Amasia, Pasargadae was built on the site where king Cyrus defeated the leader of the Medes, Astyages, in 550 BCE (Strabo, Geography 15.3.8). There is no evidence to contradict it, but the context is very odd and contains errors, so we should not place too much confidence on it.

However, that Cyrus was indeed the builder of this town, can be corroborated from the building inscriptions in the palace, which state Cyrus, the great king, an Achaemenid. If he did not build the palace on the site of his victory, there may have been other reasons: the place is beautifully situated in the center of a fertile plain which is on all sides surrounded by mountains.
