Fire temple -Ateshgah Ateshgah often called the "Fire Temple of Baku" is a castle-like religious temple in Surakhani town , a suburb in Baku, Azerbaijan. Based on Persian and Indian inscriptions, the temple was used as a Hindu, Sikh, and Zoroastrian place of worship. "Atash" is the Persian word for fire. The pentagonal complex, which has a courtyard surrounded by cells for monks and a tetrapillar-altar in the middle, was built during the 17th and 18th centuries. It was abandoned in the late 19th century, probably due to the dwindling of the Indian population in the area.
Burning mountain - Yanar Dag (Azerbaijani: Yanar Dağ, meaning "burning mountain") is a natural gas fire which blazes continuously on a hillside on the Absheron Peninsula on the Caspian Sea near Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan (a country which itself is known as "the Land of Fire"). Flames jet into the air 3 meters (9.8 ft) from a thin, porous sandstone layer.

It was declared a historical and cultural reserve in 1977 and was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2000. Sometimes, Icheri Shekher is referred to as a fortress, because its area of 221 km2 is fully surrounded by a well-preserved vallum.
