Atashgah Fire Temple – a real exotic place in Azerbaijan and know all around the world. It is located 30 km from the center of Baku, on the edge of the village of Surakhani. This area is known for such unique natural phenomenon as burning natural gas outlets (gas, bursting outward in contact with oxygen and light up).
Modern form of the temple was built in the XVII-XVIII centuries. It was based to Sikhs caste which related to Baku Hindu community.
At the beginning of the XIX century temple Ateshgah already saved it appearance and preserved to our days. Ateshgah – pentagonal structure with a toothed outer wall and entrance portal. In the center of the courtyard stands an altar-shrine in the form of a stone gazebo, which is located at the corners of a few foci. In the center of the altar – a well from which beat “eternally” burning gas.
