The Fire Temple is a Sassanid-era archaelogical complex located on a hill 8 Km West of the city center in Isfahan. The hill, which rises about 210 Meters above the surroundings plain, was previously called Maras or Marabin after a village near, and it is by that name that the site is referred to by Arab historians.
