Yanardag – One of the most famous and popular tourist places of the “eternal flame” in Azerbaijan is the mountain of Yanar Dag. Actually, it is rather a hill than a mountain, with natural gas burning on its slope from ancient times. Meter-long tongues of fire are licking the stratified earth approximately for 10 m in width, searing those who approached too close. People occupy the benches to watch the blazing hill in the evening when its sight is most effective. Yanar Dag has located 25 km to the north from Baku. Ateshgah Temple – The temple of fire worshippers Ateshgah is located at the Apsheron peninsula at the outskirts of Surakhani village in 30 km from the center of Baku and was revered in different times by Zoroastrians, Hindus, and Sikhs. It was built by the Baku-based Hindu community related to Sikhs. The pentagonal complex has an open courtyard with temple-altar in the center which was the place of pilgrimage for worshippers.
