Yazd Things to Do: 66 reviews and 130 photos
The sacred eternal flame is said to have been burning since about A.D.470. Above the entrance of the hall is a symbolic bird-man symbol of Zoroaster (see more pic). One hand holds a ring, which symbolises loyalty, while the other is held up to indicate respect. The wings have three layers of feathers, reflecting the Zoroastrian belief that you should think, speak and act decently. No admission fee.
