Description
The temple dates back to Sassanid Period (224- 651 AD) which was built originally as a square four arch shape, comprising stony columns for supporting its semi-sphere shape dome. Inside the temple there were some chambers and also a porch to locate the holy fire. The temple was intact up to about 900 A.D.
