Observe traces of ancient fire worship at Ateshgah - Fire Temple, which today functions as a museum. The large, walled, castle-like complex dates from the 17th and 18th centuries, although the location exploited Azerbaijan's gas-rich soil as far back as the 7th century CE, when Zoroastrians worshipped live fire from the natural gas vent on site. The current temple, built by Baku's Hindu community, provided a stopover for traders on the Silk Road. A museum documenting Hindu and Zoroastrian communities in Azerbaijan occupies a number of the restored pavilions, where life-size mannequins wearing traditional clothing represent life in this caravanserai.
