“Steep climb with stunning sunset views”
Reviewed 16 November 2012

An amazing Zoroastrian fire temple ruin on top of a hill with panoramic views of Isfahan and beyond. It takes about 30 minutes to climb and the climb can be rough. Wear sturdy shoes. check sunset times so you arrive at the summit before sunset then make sure to leave while there is enough light to make it down the hill. You will probably need to hire a car or driver to make it out to the site independently.

“In Picturesque Decay”
Reviewed 4 October 2011

There is so much to keep you busy in central Esfahan that if time is limited, you can safely give this site a miss. It not a patch on the mosques, bridges and palaces which are to be found in the center of this venerable old city. But the scant ruins of this Zoroastrian fire-temple are attractively located on the outskirts of town and scrambling around here to look at the crumbling walls and nearby pigeon towers, all of them many centuries old, is still a worthwhile day trip. The change of scenery from a city environment to the hills and farmland is also enjoyable. But there isn't a great deal here to see.
