Zoroastrian Fire Temple, Yazd

3.4
#4 of 9 in Historic Sites in Yazd
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.

  • such a stuning place to go nice people working there and seing the fire is great but other than that and some old bukdings hounestly there is not much to see but i recomend going to SHARBATKHANE house at the stret beside it drink some cold and tasty jusies and buy some books and clothes
  • It would be better if it was more realistic by meeting zorastrian prayers and talk with them I like it anyway
  • good place to visit but not in public holidays.especially in Nowrooz packed with different culture people, you won't be able to see the holy fire at all. cause everyone tries to take many photos with the variety of angles!!!
  • The most beautiful part of this place can be seen from outside. Only fork out the 150k rial for the entrance if you're really keen on looking at the fire that has been burning for a long long time
  • Great atmosphere. An outstanding temple everyone should visit
