Zoroastrians Celebrating “Jashn-e Sadeh” In Yazd
The central province of Yazd is home to a large population of Iranian Zoroastrians. This past Tuesday, they celebrated the annual mid-winter feast “Jashn-e Sadeh” by preparing a large bonfire (also known as Adur-Jashan, or Feast of fire).
The annual festivity honors fire, the defeat of darkness/cold and signifies the coming of Spring.
