Rudaw

Head of Zoroastrian temple says people are returning to their roots

There has been a recent surge in conversions to Zoroastrianism among Kurds at home and abroad.

Andaz Hawezi, chief of the Zoroastrian Temple in Sweden says thousands have joined the faith.

In 2011 he was elected to lead the temple. Zoroastrianism is one of the world’s oldest religions to which most Kurds trace their ancestral faith.

Hawezi says not all the new converts or followers are Kurds. There are Arabs, Turks, Persian, Swedish, Polish, British and other nationalities.

“We hope to come back to Kurdistan. That’s why we named the Temple Kurdish Zoroastrian.” Hawezi says.

The Temple in Sweden is now working to gain permission from the Kurdish government to open its temple in the Kurdistan Region.

At the moment its members meet in Sulaimani city.

“As a religion we must be everywhere. If we get permission to work here we would do our works in every part of the Kurdistan Region.” Hawezi told Rudaw in an interview.

Re: Best News EVER Kurds Returning to Zoroastrian Roots

There are little known valleys of the dead in Kurdistan

Places where the skeletons of long dead Kurds - who refused to surrender to the Islamic onslaught as it swept throughout the area - have lain undisturbed for centuries

The same way in which the Islamic State offered innocent Yazidis the choice of life as a Muslim of an horrendous death

The same way in which the Islamic State are offering innocent peoples throughout Syria and Iraq the choice of life as a Muslim of an horrendous death

A Kurd is a Kurd whatever religion has been forced upon their ancestors

A Kurd is a Kurd whichever of the oppressive states occupy their land

A Kurd is a Kurd and must support other Kurds

So that their children may say

I AM A KURD

I wonder if these neo-zoroastrians are ready to practice Indian Parsis (the true Zoroastrians) rituals, like non-burrying deads but giving them as a dinner to vultures… :lol:

Not a bad idea =))

I expect early Kurds were just the average sun worshippers

I wonder what they would have worshipped in Gobekli Tepe :-?

I do not believe in any of the religions but I still think Zoroastrianisim is better than Islam :D

An Archaeological Site In Kurdistan Is Rewriting Our Entire Understanding of Human History

Göbekli Tepe just doesn’t make sense. The neolithic archaeological ruins were first uncovered in the '60s, but their significance wasn’t truly realized until 1994. The site is located in southeastern Turkey - although it predates the establishment of the country by a significant amount of time

In fact, Göbekli Tepe is so old and complex that it is rewriting our understanding of not just Kurdish history, but the entire history of humanity. Based on everything we know about how modern civilization got its start, Göbekli Tepe should not exist. However, exist it does, and has for nearly 12,000 years.

Archaeological study of Göbekli Tepe has been going on for quite some time—even though the modern political climate in Turkey has made matters slightly more difficult. Some sections are even in the process of being restored. The site has become a tourist attraction and a source of local pride, and there are plenty of good reasons for that. Göbekli Tepe is, after all, the oldest site of significance created by human beings, and that makes it one of the most important archaeological discoveries ever made.

Almost 12,000 Years Old, But A... is listed (or ranked) 1 on the list This Archaeological Site Is Rewriting Our Entire Understanding of Human History

Göbekli Tepe is notable for multiple reasons, but they all tie back in to its excessive ancientness. The construction at Göbekli Tepe dates back almost 12,000 years, placing it in a time period that is generally considered to be pre-civilization. It was built right around the same time that the last ice age ended. Göbekli Tepe then went on to be an active civilization for nearly three millennia before being abandoned under mysterious circumstances around 9,000 years ago.

Göbekli Tepe is a site that practically begs for archaeological study. The structures that make up the site are amazingly well-preserved, allowing archaeologists to study them in something similar to their original state. Part of the reason for the remarkable preservation of Göbekli Tepe is due to the climate in Turkey, but another major factor is the fact that many of the temple sites appear to have been backfilled before being abandoned.

This allowed the structures to remain protected from the elements as the centuries wore on, preserving their history for modern humans to discover.

Predates Stonehenge, Sumer, Writing By Over 6,000 Years

One of the best ways to comprehend just how ancient Göbekli Tepe is, is to compare it to other things that are considered incredibly ancient. Göbekli Tepe predates Stonehenge, one of the most famous prehistoric construction feats in human history, by over 6,000 years. The site predates the era of Sumer, considered one of the earliest true civilizations, and the invention of writing, by a similar, 6,000-ish year margin.

To really put things in perspective, there was about as much time between the construction of Göbekli Tepe and the construction of Stonehenge as there was between the construction of Stonehenge and today.

Architecture Far Ahead Of Its Time

The fact that Göbekli Tepe is so old isn’t the only significant thing about it. The skilled architectural style seen in the construction of its many “temples” is seriously impressive, and would be in any era. The combination of the site’s age and construction quality, however, is what makes it such an earth-shaking revelation for the archaeological world. The craftsmanship seen at Göbekli Tepe is thousands of years ahead of its time, and dates back to long before such construction should have been possible.

The manpower, engineering, and project managing required for such an endeavor all seem unfeasible, given where human civilization was understood to be at the time. The very existence of Göbekli Tepe has forced archaeologists to re-think the dawn of civilization.
