About Pire Naraki Pantheon

Zoroastrians have built rooms called Khile with a traditional architectural style made of mud. These rooms are structured for pilgrims. At the time of Parsian attack to Iran, Zarbanou escaped from Pars that was the center of enemies’ attacks to Yazd but soon recognized that Yazd was attacked, too. So she arrived to Dare Zanjir and took refuge in the mountains but the mountain did not shelter her and so this is why people still throw stones to the mountain as a ritual.
