For me, it is very interesting to me to see how religion can shape up history, and the affect of this history in creating culture. Visiting Ateshgah, and knowing about how old Zardashtes used to inviolable the firs as its represent the power of god. Not to far from Baku and for sure worth a visit.

Especially in the evening / at night the Fire Temple of Ateshgah is a very unique place. It is about 17kilometers outside of the city center and 10kilometers from the airport. Inside of the small rooms you can learn more about the history of the Fire Temple. I really enjoyed my time there and can recommend it once in that... More

A must see! This has been preserved/renovated really well. The ground has not been concreted over so you can see the original landscape. The temple and the order it was built was fascinating and the history of the different types of people staying there along the Silk Road extremely interesting. Worth a trip!!!

Ateshgah temple was built in XVI-XVII century by fire-worshipers, who were the followers of Zoroastrianism. You can read a history inside the temple. I would say it is worth visiting if you have more than 3 days in Baku, otherwise it can be skipped. The temple can be reached by bus 184 from Koroglu metro station (0.2 manat).

We had a tour of this temple which was visited by Gandhi and Tzar Nicholas! It was easy to imagine why the folk of the day thought it was a direct line to whichever god they worshipped with the fire.

We just managed to get there before closing time (6pm). It's 2 Azn entrance fee, which we were not charged fit. The staff seemed quite friendly. The fire in the central temple is fuelled; so we have been told.
