As a symbol of fire, Ateshgah temple has become a favorite place for tourists who come to our country, especially indians those who still worship Zoroastrianism.
At the arrival to a pentagonal complex “Temple of fire” in Surakhani,you will see a courtyard surrounded by cells for monks and castle-like religious temple-altar in the middle. Based on Persian and Indian inscriptions, temple was used as a Hindu and Zoroastrianplace of worship.

Today, the fires in the complex are fed by gas piped in from Baku
