It's an interesting place to visit, especially after the Fire Mountain. The flames here are now not natural due to the extraction of oil and gas reducing the pressure. You can though see how it would have been. There is a range of rooms with exhibitions in that are well worth looking through.

Its ancient Hindu temple , in the doors of every temple you can clearly see , read sanskrit shloka , this place shows how rich far was hindu culture / religion was , unfortunately in hinduism we not believe to convert anyone by power / sword because of this hinduism left in only 2-3 countries in world.

Having a great guide made this an interesting and informative visit. Each room we went into moved the historic story along and it really is a wonderful place to visit, history lover or not.

If you love the history of the country you are vising, then Ateshgah - fire temple is not to be missed. The pentagonal building used to be the place of worship for Zoorastrians, Hindus and Sikhs in the history. It symbolises the religious harmony and cultures in the past. It is said, the natural gas reserves below found place to come to surface and fire started. Now the fire is lit artificially by continuous supply through pipes in the altar in the centre of this building. At places, there are inscriptions in Sanskrit and Punjabi. There are cells in the building which were used for preaching, worshipping, tortures. It's located approximately 30 km from Baku. You will enjoy visiting this place if you read about it briefly before your intended visit

The city of oil. The fires that unextinghishable. The whole history of the place is really interesting as didn't know it was Zorastrian that have started the temple and then it transitioned to Hindu etc. Impeccably done with each room with different figurines describing all in chronological order. I would also advise visiting Yanardag as it is close and does have a forever fire burning

If you want to spare some money and go to the temple like the locals do, get off at Koroglu metro station. Then, take bus #184 right under a heavy traffic underpass - ask local people or street vendors where the bus stop is located as there is no sign. The temple bus stop is the last one.

Wasn’t originally scheduled to go to this place but was happy we did. This place is well preserved. While the flame in the temple is artificially lit as this point because the original oil from the area was removed a while ago

For the first time you see how people adored and prayed to fire as a real God, A place where you feel how humans worshiped the fire, really amazinz, It is quite obvious to understand it in Azerbaijan because this phenomenon of fire bursting out of the soil really exist.
