ERBIL (Kurdistan 24) – A local organization dedicated to the Zoroastrian religion and philosophy on Thursday held a special ceremony at one of the group's fire temples located in the Kurdistan Region.

Members of the Basna Organization, whose efforts usually focus on preserving local archaeological sites, performed the rite in Sulaimani province’s town of Darbandikhan.

During the event, participants observed a number of the religion's rituals and read some of the faith's texts and core doctrines aloud to attendees. Organizers also offered a special award to the mayor of Darbandikhan for his efforts in protecting such ancient sites as the temple during his tenure.

Principles seem similar to Christianity.

They were chased out of Iran to a large extent where it started but were able to go to India and apparently other areas such as Kurdistan. The religion is protected there.

There's quite a bit on youtube on them if one is interested.
