Zoroastrianism, sometimes called less correctly 'fire worshipping’, is one of the world's oldest monotheistic religions. It was founded by the Prophet Zoroaster in ancient Iran approximately 3500 years ago. According to the last census there are about 25000 Zoroastrians living in Iran, many of them in central provinces like Yazd and Kerman. People of Yazd celebrate their national, local and religious occasions same other regions in the country. Iran's largest community of Zoroastrians are settled in Yazd more than any part of Iran who have enriched the social fascinations with their own special ceremonies and traditions. Uppersia’s well-informed tour guide, Leila, suggested our guests to visit Fire Temple, one of the most-visited Zoroastrianism monuments in Yazd, and get a little about Zoroastrian beliefs.
