It is a fantastic place to visit in Azarbaijan, where you can understand more about Zorostorianidm and their religious culture. The fire in the temple is now burning by pipeline gas but it was natural fire for thousand years.

Worth to visit historic site with great panoramic views. Zoroastrians were big part of Persian culture and there you could touch it.

The fine historic site and remains comprising thick sun-dried walls and a group of other ruins on top of a single rocky mountain, is 8 km to the west of Esfahan.

It's a bit far so you'd have to take a bus. I went there first thing in the morning hoping to catch sunrise. The climb itself isnt too difficult except for the last 20 steps or so due to loose rocks. Once you get to...More

I was there last week. We went there at noon and i should say the view is so so good. The entrance is free but they say if you go upper you should pay to go on. We didn't go that high.
