Zoroastrian Fire Temple, Yazd
(3.2/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
See the flame allegedly lit in the 4th century at Zoroastrian Fire Temple. The temple, built in 1934, houses one of nine existing Atash Behram flames, which represent the most revered type of fire a Zoroastrian temple can possess. Step into the Achaemenid-style building, surrounded by a peaceful garden, to observe the sacred flame, brought from Aqda to Yazd when the temple was established. The iconic flame, situated behind a glass enclosure, supposedly traces its origins to an elaborate ritual in which 16 priests collect 32 types of fire and join them in a consecration ceremony.

  • Half of the Zoroastrians, the temple inside the sacred fire, visible from a glass. The surrounding garden is well cared for. It does not take much time for visiting! A half hour is more than enough.
