Heritage, Contribution and Customs of a small community


Parsi Zoroastrains are followers of Zarathustra (1500 BC) a Persian Prophet who was the first to preach the existence of one God (Ahura Mazda), resurrection of the dead, heaven and hell, and many other aspects of the Abrahamic faiths. I am a Zoroastrain.

Our tour with concentrate on the practices, contributions, culture, and institutions of the Parsis by visiting their most significant sites like Bhikha Behram Well of miracles (1725), Parsi Dairy Farm for yummy desserts (1916), Taj Mahal Palace Hotel (1903), Parsi General Hospital (1912), private Ripon Club, a Parsi only club, where I am a member and we will have lunch (1884), Cusrow Baug (1934) a Parsi only colony with a fire temple, Parsi Alpaiwalla Museum (1981), and any others we have time to squeeze in.
