Zoroastrianism


Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

Iranian religion derived from the teachings of Zoroaster (Zarathustra) (probably early-second millennium bc), which still has devotees (e.g. the Parsees of India). The most important architectural remains are fire temples: such buildings provided precedents for later Islamic mausolea and elements of mosque design.
