11 August 2005

 

 

Archaeologists have discovered Sabzevar second fire temple which dates back to the Sassanid era.

Mir Mozaffar fire temple which is recently registered as a national Iranian heritage is the second fire temple discovered in Sabzevar after Azar Barzin.

The square dome fire temple is located along King Road, one of the key ancient roads of Iran, and according to archaeologist with Iranian Cultural Heritage and Tourism Organization (ICHTO) department of Khorasan Razavi province, is smaller than the famous Azar Barzin fire temple.

The temple is located on a mountain and is completely made of stone. It includes several cellars, tombs, and military posts. There is a sacred spring nearby which people believe cures maladies and grants wishes. The spring brought people to the area and led to the construction of residential structures, fortresses, and prisons.
