Description

Edit
Four pillars from seven pillars of Natanz Fire Temple are still standing, a fire temple that is said to be built in the Sassanian era.
Though, from its four free standing arches, only one is standing, but it is still the Natanz Fire Temple.
Close to the Fire Temple the public mosque of Natanz is built and it is said that it was built a thousand years ago, on the foundations of the Sassanian fire Temple.

Two of the arches, from the four arches that connected the square surface of the structure to the upper ceiling of the dome are still remaining. The length of each of the outer walls of the structure is 11 m and 35 cm and the inner part is 7 m in length. The opening of each of the arches is 69m and 50 cm.

The fire Temple is at present inside a garden and private estate by the name of Imam Oskouie, and the Cultural Heritage Organization has neglected it. Natanz Fire temple is situated in Natanz District, a place with a history of 6000 years civilization. Natanz was called Natin and Natan in the ancient Pahlavi language, meaning a place with pleasant climate. In the course of time Natanz changed completely.
Natanz is located in the north of Isfahan province, on the edge of the desert, but its climate is unlike desert climate. It is fertile and green, with a mountainous and semi plain climate.
