Ateshgah (Fire Temple) Tours

3 Reviews
Ateshgah (Fire Temple)
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.

Practical Info

If you visit by taxi, arrange for pickup to save yourself some money, as the taxis waiting outside the temple often hike up their rates.

Private Absheron Tour

Yanardag – One of the most famous and popular tourist places of the “eternal flame” in Azerbaijan is the mountain of Yanar Dag. Actually, it is rather a hill than a mountain, with natural gas burning on its slope from ancient times. Meter-long tongues of fire are licking the stratified earth approximately for 10 m in width, searing those who approached too close. People occupy the benches to watch the blazing hill in the evening when its sight is most effective. Yanar Dag has located 25 km to the north from Baku. Ateshgah Temple – The temple of fire worshippers Ateshgah is located at the Apsheron peninsula at the outskirts of Surakhani village in 30 km from the center of Baku and was revered in different times by Zoroastrians, Hindus, and Sikhs. It was built by the Baku-based Hindu community related to Sikhs. The pentagonal complex has an open courtyard with temple-altar in the center which was the place of pilgrimage for worshippers.
