Description

This fire temple is among the most important in the world, its fire has been preserved for about a millennia and a half by devout Zoroastrians, it was moved once every few years, until finally this building was built for it with donations from Indian Zoroastrians in 1934. One of the interesting features of this place is the large Fravahar sign above the entrance, also you can take nice pictures when the pool in the courtyard reflects the image of the building at night. There is small museum next to the building showcasing Zoroastrian traditions and attire.
