Magi and ‘Fire Temples’

Zoroastrian Magi have always had a connection with fire.

But through the first 500 years of modern history, Magi were in a phase that rejected the idea of a place of worship and were radically against a temple of any sort.  They were thought of as folly.

This would mean that the Magi who worshiped the Christ child were of the same ilk, probably.

However, around 500 AD, the thought seemed to shift and small open aired ‘fire temples’ began to pop up all over the middle east and much of the near east also.

There were four simple walls representing the four directions  and, at its center an open flame.  These began to pop up in Armenia and up through Azerbaijani and may leave a trail to follow the descendants of the Magi.
