First you will be taken to the Fire temple . During the ride he will tell you interesting stories about city and cite. At the arrival to a pentagonal complex Temple of fire in Surakhani, you will see a courtyard surrounded by cells for monks and castle-like religious temple-altar in the middle. Based on Persian and Indian inscriptions, temple was used as a Hindu and Zoroastrian place of worship. The name refers to the fact that the site is situated atop a now-exhausted natural gas field, which once caused natural fires to spontaneously burn there as the gas emerged from seven natural surface vents. Today, the fires in the complex are fed by gas piped in from Baku.
