Based on Persian and Indian inscriptions, temple was used as a Hindu and Zoroastrian place of worship.

Where in the world would one ever be permitted to enter and walk around the Fire Temple? Although it is more of a historic site than a religious one,it was a good visit. Also a great revelation into the past. Lots to see and understand. Our guide was very informative and we enjoyed this side excursion.

I feel sorry but this was a huge disappointment. I mean, its interesting that there are some plastic figures representing original habitants and a some historical aspects of living written on boards in each "room" but that is not much attractive. It took us lots of time to get there, we had to pay and the best thing we saw... More

I don't know why but my expectations of Ateshgah were not that high, a couple of underwhelming reviews I'd read perhaps? Anyway, what a lovely surprise this was. It is enchanting. Beautiful from the outside it doesn't disappoint once inside. The fire Temple takes central stage with his blazing fire, two other altars ablaze at its flanks. The many rooms... More

The fastes way here is on bus 184 from Koroglu metro. When exiting the metro go to your right and walk to the very back row of busses to find bus 84. The fare is .20 AZN ($0.12 USD as of today). The bus ends where you want to get off at the Suraxani train station. Walk across the tracks... More

A visit to the Ateshgah Fire Temple Complex give you an interesting insight into the history of the place and how Zorashtrians and Hindus once lived there. The complex is well restored and a museum has valuable details of how it once looked and how people lived there. Its also nice to know that the Azerbaijan Government has taken efforts... More
