About Zoroastrianism

Zoroastrianism is one of the world’s oldest monotheistic religions, founded by the Prophet Zarathustra (also referred to as Zoroaster) in ancient Persia, over 3,500 years ago.

For over a thousand years, Zoroastrianism was the religion of some of the most powerful kingdoms in the world, including those led by Xerxes the Great, Cyrus the Great, and Darius the Great. Zoroastrianism was the official religion of Persia (now Iran) from 600 BCE to 650 CE.

Zoroastrianism is now one of the world’s smallest religions, with less than 180,000 followers worldwide, of which around 59,000 live in India.

Zoroastrianism is an ancient Persian religion that may have originated as early as 4,000 years ago. Arguably the world’s first monotheistic faith, it’s one of the oldest religions still in existence (more)
