Zoroastrian Fire Temple, Yazd

Religious Site · Tourist Spot
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.

  • Oh its so interesting and i like it. We saw it at night but very beautiful All of you should see it. Yazd is magical
  • The city Yazd is very famous for it's history and tradition. It is important to mention that Persia created one of the oldest monotheistic religion in the world by the name of Zoroastrianism. Yazd is located in the middle of Iran and was the center of the Zoroastrianism. Atashkadeh is the place where the Zoroastrians pray and worship fire. It is indeed a beautiful place with most historical descriptions. Definitely a worthy place to visit
