Zoroastrian Fire Temple, Yazd
(3.2/5 based on 380+ 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.

  • 距離Yazd城鎮中心有點遠,但值得一遊,畢竟曾是當地繁盛的教派。聖火遠比想像的小,但有些畫作可以欣賞。 對遊客而言,最重要的反而是對面二樓有匯率相當好的匯兌處。 
  • Make a stop at this sacred place for the Zoroastrians, because a fire burning for several millennia, maintained and moved even in times of war.
