Zoroastrian Fire Temple, Yazd
Categories: Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
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.
