ZOROASTRIANS PRAY IN IRAN
Farrokh Jamshidi, Iranian Zoroastrian priest, adjusts the wood of a sacred flame in a Zoroastrian Fire Temple (Atashkadeh) in Yazd, Iran, 795Km (495 Miles) southeast of Tehran on May 30, 2008. This Zoroastrains' fire temple was built in 1934 on a site belonging to the Association of the parsi Zoroastrian of India under the supervision of Jamshid Amanat. The sacred flame, behind a glass case and visible from the entrance hall has apparently been burning since about A.D.470, and was transferred from Nahid-e-Pars temple first to Ardakan, then to Yazd and to its present site.
