Ateshgah - Fire Temple


Welcome to Ateshgah - Fire Temple! The temple in its present state was constructed in the 17th-18th centuries. It was built by the Baku-based Hindu community related to Sikhs. However, the history of the Temple is even longer. in the past this was the holy place of Zoroastrians- fire worshippers (approximately beginning of our era). They attributed mystical significance to the inextinguishable fire and came there to worship the religion. As you can see - this country is full of mystics! Why don't you want to touch the magical history of Azerbaijan?
