Thank you for including my Parsi – Zoroastrian religions sacred sites in the city’s Heritage list.
It is my fervent wish and desire that all our Agiaries and Atash Behrams be upgraded to the highest status which will protect the structures and come under strict controls of important heritage rules.
This will preserve my religious and cultural heritage for future generations of my community to enjoy.
May God guide you with wisdom in making these important decisions for the future of the Parsi Zoroastrain sacred sites.
