Ateshkadeh Yazd

Zoroastrians from around the world come here to view this sacred flame which has supposedly been burning non-stop inside this building since about 470 AD. Above the temple you can see the Fravahar symbol which represents the Good Thoughts, Good Mind, Good Deeds which forms one of the central principles of Zoroastrianism.
