The Zoroastrian Path From Yazd & Beyond
Calling all culture-lovers interested in the charms of Zoroastrianism. We’re going on a one-day tour around the unique relics of the ancient religion in and outside Yazd. Our adventure starts with meeting our Zoroastrian guide (or one closely familiar with the culture) in Yazd. We’ll first have an exploration in the Museum of Zoroastrians History and Culture. Then, we’ll check out the world’s longest-burning sacred fire in the Fire Temple of Yazd. After that, we’ll go to Asadan Castle (also known as Seti Pir Shrine) and listen to the interesting stories behind it. Our next destination will be Cham Village (about 17 km). There, we’ll discover the ancient religion’s secrets in Cham Tower of Silence and pay a visit to the village’s 3500-year-old cypress tree. Following that, we’ll head toward Taft Village. On our way there, we’ll meet the old Twin Cypresses of the lovely Mobarakeh Village (about 9 km). In Taft, we’ll visit the historical Taft Fire Temple before we make ourselves comfortable beside a Zoroastrian family. In their lovely garden ecolodge, we’ll be invited to a tasty lunch while talking about Zoroastrian culture. Finally, we’ll head back toward Yazd (around 23 km).
