Eternal Flame Mountain & Ateshgah Tour

Fire rituals at the peninsula’s numerous natural gas vents date back to at least the 10th century, although the current temple structure was built during the 17th and 18th centuries. The structure is similar to the caravanserais (travelers’ inns) of the region with pentagonal walls surrounding a courtyard. However, in the middle of this courtyard sits an altar, the centerpiece of the temple complex where fire rituals were observed. The altar is situated right a natural gas vent, igniting a large flame in the middle and four smaller flames on the rooftop corners of the pavilion. Surrounding a temple altar are a number of small cells which held the ascetic worshippers and pilgrims. You will discover Yanardag Mount often called as "eternal flame mountain" and get acquainted with famous fire temple of Ateshgah.
