Parsis: The Zoroastrians of India Pakistan and The World

Iranshah Atashbehram – A Documentary

A local Indian TV channel shot this short documentary on Udvada and the Iranshah Atashbehram. The documentary has some very unique aerial drone videography that shows aerial views of Udvada and the Iranshah Atashbehram that is probably a first. Those that have been interviewed, sadly show a certain lack of knowledge about the Iranshah Atashbehram itself.

Udvada, a scenic coastal hamlet located a couple of hours drive from Surat boasts of one of the most important fire temples of the Parsi community – The Udvada Atash Behram. Also hailed as the “Iran Shah” this temple is one of the oldest fire temples in India. Literally meaning “the victorious fire” the Atash Behram attracts thousands of Zoroastrian pilgrims from all over the country and beyond. With folded hands and bowed heads, devotees throng here to connect with their spiritual selves. In addition to providing solace, the Udvada Atash Behram will reveal to you divinity in its all its grandeur.
