Navsari Atashbehram Celebrates 250 Years

The Navsari Atashbehram celebrates 250 years this weekend. Celebrations are planned all over the weekend.

The Atashbehram holds a special place in our hearts. My maternal grandparents hail from Navsari and we have two ancestral homes in Navsari. My mom Behroz, sister Mehernaaz, myself and now my two year old niece Ava have all been visitors to the Atashbehram since we were born, and continue to go whenever we get an opportunity.

The Atashbehram is also a regular pit stop on the Zoroastrian Return To Roots Trip.
