Zoroastrians did NOT worship fire, but it was one of their 4 essential elements. A priest has kept the fire going continuously (supposedly) for 1500 years.

This temple is accessible from old town. The sacred fire is flaming. The building is new, and it is not like typical temple, believers are not around but tourists. This is it? No, please visit museum and read thoroughly, you learn about Zoroaster a lot.

A nice, but modern, building which houses a flame with an interesting story behind it. I spent a few minutes in the building to check out the flame and walked through the museum. This building is probably more important to believers in the religion.

Religion and history. You should read something about the Zoroastrian religion and history before getting here. About the "eternal " fire and it's meaning. A guide would also explain to you the meaning of the symbols on top of the building.

I thought this attraction was a little underwhelming I'm interested in the Zoroastrian religion but this is just the eternal flame plus some inspirational verses on the wall

It is an important place and must-see in Yazd. There are not much more places with an old fire in the world. It is small but informative

The history is connected to this place and it illustrates the ancient religion of Iran before Islam. They keep an old fire there which is believed to be burning over centuries.

If you intrested to know about other religions, it's one of the places you must see. The holy fire which has been burning since 1550 years ago is the main attraction there.
