The fire inside is said to have been burning since about AD470. Visible through a window from the entrance hall, the flame was transferred to Ardakan in 1174, then to Yazd in 1474 and to its present site in 1940.

Above the entrance of this building, there is symbolic bird-man symbol of Zoroaster. One hand holds a ring, which symbolizes loyalty, while the other hand is held up to indicate respect.

The wings have three layers of feather, reflecting the Zoroastrian belief that you should think, speak and act decently.
