Indiana Jones and the Fire Temple of Taft


We left Yazd this morning, on our way to Shiraz, but stopped first at a nearby village with the improbable name of Taft.

Many Zoroastrians live here, and our itinerary had us visiting the small fire temple. Which turned out to be not so simple.

First we had to find a road off the highway that actually led into the village. Once there, we wandered through winding medieval streets lined with mud-brick walls looking for the fire temple. We found gardens, and a pair of very vocal goats, but no temple.

Finally, a clue!
