Parsi Fire Temple in Kolkata

The first Parsi Fire Temple in Kolkata. Now abandoned and in ruins, structurally weak too. Needs a renovation & a reuse plan.

Will the Rustomji Cowasjee Banaji Fire Temple ever be restored?

    1. no Freddy darling u r wrong.even with a declini g no.of parsis the agiyari can be kept alive.firstly finds are needed n then the initiatives.

  1. Heck no !!! It was an Icon of the community for more than a century, Divert some of the funding earmarked for showpiece projects to the preservation of our historical and cultural heritage, The coffers of our Anjuman arent exactly running dry.

  2. We are spending more money on creating and maintaining museums and leaving the real fire temples to decay. The westernised Parsis have brought the downfall of our religion. Like the Sikh community our anjumans must also declare them as “tankhiyas” or outlaws and their names must be published in Parsi newspaper.
