Mumbai’s Parsi Fire Temples

Zoroastrian is one of the world’s oldest religions, and Zoroastrians—often called dar-e mehr in Persian–the religion’s worshippers. One unique aspect of the Zoroastrian religion is the use of fire in their temples, which are seen as symbolic of the divinity.

With only 27 fire temples found outside of India, the highest concentration of fire temples can be found in Mumbai.
