Zoroastrian Fire Temple in Yazd, the most important Zoroastrian fire temple in the world
? It was built about 80 years ago. When the Zoroastrians decided to build a fire temple for themselves, a Zoroastrian Indian joined them to build this fire temple. In India, Zoroastrians are known as “Parseh”, they are the same Zoroastrians who immigrated to India 300 years ago. At the top of the building is the symbol of “Forouhar”, which for Zoroastrians is the cross of Christians. The symbol of Forouhar is the image of an old man, which shows the value that Zarathustra attaches to the elderly. It is said that the fire that burns in the fire temple of Yazd has not been extinguished for about 1600 years. The worshipers are only allowed to enter the room of the fire headquarters. The fire burns inside a large bronze chamber. This fire was brought from Aqada Karian Larestan fire temple to Aqda in Yazd and was lit there for about 700 years, then from Aqda to Ardakan and finally to Yazd. He was first transferred to the house of one of the priests and later to the current location of the Zoroastrian fire temple in Yazd.
