Zoroastrian Fire Temple

In the desert province of Yazd lies the Zoroastrian Fire Temple which enshrines Atash Bahram with the meaning of “Victorious Fire” dated to 470 AD. It is one of the nine Atash Bahrams as well as one of the highest grade fires in Iran where Zoroastrians have practiced their religion sine 400 B.C.

According to an inscription fixed on the shrine this fire temple was built in 1934 in Achaemenid architecture by a Sassanian King. Its design is similar to the other 8 Atash Bahram temples which are all in India.

The symbol of Ahura Mazda is embedded on the front door.
