As a Hindu, it was hair raising feeling to know that there was a temple dedicated to Indian Gods and this place is preserved to make the history alive.

Visited here as part of a tour with my hostel of multiple sights. I wouldn't go here as a sole trip to an individual sight as it would only take 30 minutes to look around after a lot of travelling from Baku. It costs 2 AZN to enter and managed to hold my interest during this time. Good but not... More

We enjoyed a visit to the "Fire Temple" and learned a lot from our guide who explained how the temple was used as a Hindu and Zoroastrian place of worship.

This site is an unusual site with the fire always burning. The fire originally came from the gas found that in the area. There is also a great museum set out showing how the pilgrims came and visited the area. The local guide was very good and gave us an idea of how this area was used. The Religious group... More

This is an old Zarathustran Temple, includes a small Hindu temple as well, I found it very interesting and peaceful. Only downside, many tourist groups of annoying Iraqi men come here, some of em behave like 5 year old children. You have to come here very early in the morning if you wish to avoid the disturbing crowd.

Nice place for people who are interested in history. But was not for me... Maybe getting some heat from the fire in such a cold weather was the best thing.

There is a train station nearby, but 20 minutes in the train station in Baku left... More
