A visit to Yazd, one of the centers of Zoroastrianism

 

A mini-history of this religion gained from a visit to Yazd, one of the centers of Zoroastrianism. Includes some teachings of Zarathustra, a visit to a Fire Temple and the site of a couple of Towers of Silence called Dakhmas where bodies were exposed to vultures and predatory birds to avoid contamination of the earth. Bones could be buried.
