A place of purity and sanctity of the elemental endurance of fire, which has been living for 1300 years. Zoroastrian beliefs and traditions are based in the four elements of sky, fire, water and earth. Representing the good energy and character development is the ring of Ahura Mazda, where the circle of gold gives loyalty. The sun and moon are reflected as the light and dark of life. All the four elements are in unison and balance.
