They are commonly referred to as the Fire-Worshippers
because they always have a sacred fire burning in their temple. Fire, earth and water are three sacred
elements to the Zoroastrian religion. Their most obscure ritual is known as the "Tower of Silence". In
this ritual they leave the dead exposed to be pecked at and eaten by the birds. This is an important
ritual for them, as it disposes of the dead without defiling the earth, fire or water. One can not
convert to this faith, one must be born into it. Back to Zoroastrianism.
