Atashkadeh-e Yazd (Fire Temple of Yazd)
What’s unique about Yazd and its religious attractions is its exceptional Zoroastrian pilgrimage sites such as the Fire Temple, Tower of Silence, and the Chak Chak village among which the Fire Temple is the most notable and honored one among Zoroastrians. This extraordinary structure with its flower carvings and the great Faravahar symbol standing high up the entrance to this place has housed a fire that is assumed to be burning since the fifth century. The building itself reflects through the clear surface of an oval pool among a beautiful garden and dates back to pre-Islamic Era. Here you’d get a chance to get to know more about the oldest monotheistic religion, Zoroastrianism.
