Zoroastrian Fire Temple, Yazd

(3.2/5 based on 420+ 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.

  • If you never knew what Zoroastrian was all about, this is a must place to go. Also should visit the neighborhood as there is still a small community of Zoroastrians living there. 
  • I didn't know anything about Zoroastrian culture before visiting Iran. This temple (and our guide) explained so much. Definitely worth a visit. 
  • the exhibition brings to life the religion zoroastriańską, the continuously burning from the 1400 years of Holy fire. a little less but still more than in many other places for 20pln per person
