Gobustan Rocks are not just the brightest witnesses of the prehistoric period of human existence. They reflect the history of this region for nearly 15,000 years - since the end of the era of the Upper Paleolithic until the Middle Ages. 
The Ancient Zoroastrian Temple Ateshgah - "Fire Temple"
After lunch we have an  excursion to the Temple of Fire Worshippers - "Ateshgah" and the fiery mountain "Yanardagh"
Azerbaijan is one of the few places on earth, where even today one can observe elements of preserved fire cult and the ancient Zoroastrianism religion. These places where oil oozes from the Earth, and natural gas breaks out like flaming torches have always attracted fire worshipers from around the world. Baku, its oil, its "burning earth" have been known far beyond its borders since ancient times. The official religion of the ancient states that emerged in the VII century BC, such as Mann and Midia was Zoroastrianism. The spread of Zoroastrianism in the territory of the modern Azerbaijan was due to spontaneously flammable sources of oil and gas. Therefore, in this area such a monument as the temple “Ateshgah” has survived.

Fire Temple “Ateshgah” (literally Fire House) is located in 30 kilometers from the center of Baku, in the south-eastern outskirts of the Absheron Peninsula.
15:30 – 18:30 Ethnographic Open-Air Museum "Gala" is about a 40-minute drive from Baku. The museum was created on an archaeological site.
The village is five thousand years; nevertheless, there are still some neighborhoods that have survived to the present day.
During the tour, you will be acquainted with the ancient dwellings, with the life of that time, traditions, with methods of farming.
Participants will be told about the way of living of people who lived here many centuries ago, you will see the real objects of that time.
17:00 - Next to this small village in the Absheron Peninsula Mount Yanardagh is situated. The word "Yanar" in Azeri language means "burning", and "Dagh" - "mountain". And this is real a burning mountain - not metaphorically, but literally. Once in Absheron it had been a lot of places where natural gas coming out from the earth to the surface ignited spontaneously, but with the start of mass extraction of oil and gas in Absheron these places started to disappear. At present, it is the only place of this unique natural phenomenon - the output of natural gas to the surface.
