LAND OF FIRE!
We plan to visit the ancient and the modern sights that that uniquely reflect the country’s fierce history. The Ateşgah Fire Temple is one of Azerbaijan’s most remarkable sights. It stands on the site of a natural gas vent that was sacred to Zoroastrians for centuries, though this temple was actually built by 18th-century Indian Shiva devotees. They performed extreme ascetic practices such as lying on hot coals or carrying unbearably heavy chains.
Though there are no hot coals to walk on, we would still like to visit the holy site and other fire themed architectural marvel such as the 'Flame Towers'.
