Religion

General info

Zoroastrianism is one of the oldest religions of the world-approximately 3,500 years old!

It was founded by Prophet Zarathustra who lived in ancient Persia.

Persecuted by invading Muslim Arabs the Zoroastrains fled from Persia to various countries

-mainly to India, over 10 centuries ago.

The Zoroastrains who fled from Persia, (from the region of Pars) are called Parsees

Most of them settled in the western state of Gujerat, then went to Bombay (now Mumbai ) and other parts of India.

Many Parsees then spread their wings and went to live in countries like UK, USA, Canada, New Zealand and Australia.

Note: There are many great sites on the internet with more info about our wonderful religion-so do browse for them!
