In any case, whatever the use of the Cube of Zoroaster was, we can be sure that it was a respectable and well-protected building in the period of ancient Iran. Its construction in the Achaemenid era at the same time as the construction of Persepolis and in front of the tombs of the great Achaemenid kings, and its appearance on the coins of the local kings of Fars in the Parthian period (which of course, is only a guess) and the inscription on it in the Sassanid period confirm this opinion.

Those who defend Zoroastrian’s Kaaba as a tomb say that the entrance door of the building is the same as the entrance door of the graves of the Achaemenid kings.

The structure of the building is made of stone and does not touch the soil, which is one of the characteristics of Zoroastrian tombs. In addition, the tradition of tower-like tombs, derived from the Zoroastrian tradition, continued later, which can be seen in places such as Lajim Tower, Rasket Tower, and Qaboos Dome Tower. However, none of the theories have been persuasive, and the mystery remains unsolved.
