Niasar Fire Temple

30 kilometres to the west of Kashan on the road to Ardahal and enjoys a moderate climate in a mountainous area. Since the fields were once covered with reeds, it was called Neysareh (Ney meaning reed). The 14-meter high Sasanid structure, built with stone and mortar, is believed by the Italian archaeologist Andre Godar, to be the first fire temple built for Ardeshir Babakan the founder of the Sasanid dynasty (224 CE). The fire temple was built on the Zoroastrian model prevalent in Iran. It is a good example of a Sasanid Chahar Taghi and its beauty results from the harmony and balance of its structure. The neighbouring Eskandarieh spring may have influenced its location.
