Fire Temples

FIRE TEMPLE  (ATESHGAH)

          The dominant per - Islamic religion in Iran was Zoroastrianism. Central towns and even villages show pre - Islamic Fire Temples which were respected by Zoroastrian. One of these Fire Temples was built on the top of a hill which is more than one hundred meters high, quite close to the shaking Minarets.

          The temple is surrounded by pre Islamic ruins, made of huge sun dried bricks. Probably the surrounding buildings were used by Zoroastrian priests and pilgrims. From the top of the hill a wonderful view of Isfahan’s gardens and Zayandeh Rood River can be seen.
