Ateshgah (Fire Temple) Tours and Activities

star-5
800 Reviews

Azerbaijan is nicknamed the land of fire, thanks to its numerous natural gas vents and a long history of fire worship in the country. The Baku Ateshgah (Fire Temple) was built during the 17th and 18th centuries as a monastery and place of worship for Zoroastrian monks as well as Indian devotees of Shiva. The pentagonal castle like structure was constructed on top of a natural gas vent where fire rituals were practiced, like lying atop hot coals.

Modern visitors will still see a flame rising from the main alter and four smaller flames, but they’re no longer natural. Exploitation of the area’s natural gas reserves exhausted the subterranean natural gas field long ago, so the new flame has been tapped in to Baku’s main gas supply piped in from the city.

With Private Fire Temple and Fire Mountain Tour you will find out why actually Azerbaijan is called land of fire with visiting 17th century fire temple and hill that literally burning 4 millenniums. For centuries, fire-worshipers from faraway countries, and even priests from India have searched for the fire and found it in Absheron and built their main temple here - Surakhani Atashgah. The burning of the foot of the mountain (Yanardagh) for a long time is the main nuance that attracts attention. The most interesting thing is that the wind, rain and snow have not been able to extinguish this fire for 4,000 years.
