The religious texts of the Zoroastrian (Parsis) are The Avesta collection of the sacred texts, these are complemented by several secondary works of religious or semi-relig…ious nature, which although not sacred and not used as scripture, have a significant influence on Zoroastrian doctrine. The Avesta texts are very old and the compendium as we know it today is essentially the result of a redaction that is thought to have occurred during the reign of Shapur II (309-379 CE). However, some portions of the collection have been lost since then, especially after the fall of the Sassanid empire in 651 CE. The oldest existing copy of an Avestan language text dates to 1288 CE.

an agiary or a fire temple or a satesh gah which is justa fire bascically. there are many types Atash Dadgah The Atash Dadgah is the lowest grade of sacred fire, and can… be consecrated within the course of a few hours by two priests, who alternatingly recite the 72 verses of the Yasna liturgy. Consecration may occasionally include the recitation of the Vendidad , but this is optional. A lay person may tend the fire when no services are in progress. The term is not necessarily a consecrated fire, and the term is also applied to the hearth fire, or to the oil lamp found in many Zoroastrian homes. [ edit ]Atash Adaran The next highest grade of fire is the Atash Adaran , the "Fire of fires". It requires a gathering of hearth fire from representatives of the four professional groups (that reflect feudal estates): from a hearth fire of the asronih (the priesthood), the (r)atheshtarih (soldiers and civil servants), the vastaryoshih (farmers and herdsmen) and the hutokshih (artisans and laborers). Eight priests are required to consecrate an Adaran fire and the procedure takes between two and three weeks. [ edit ]Atash Behram Main article: Atash Behram .
The Yazd Atash Behram.
The highest grade of fire is the Atash Behram , "Fire of victory", and its establishment and consecration is the most elaborate of the three. It involves the gathering of 16 different "kinds of fire", that is, fires gathered from 16 different sources, including lightning , fire from a cremation pyre , fire from trades where a furnace is operated, and fires from the hearths as is also the case for the Atash Adaran . Each of the 16 fires is then subject to a purification ritual before it joins the others. 32 priests are required for the consecration ceremony, which can take up to a year to complete. A temple that maintains an Adaran or Behram fire also maintains at least one Dadgah fire. In contrast to the Adaran and Behram fires, the Dadgah fire is the one at which priests then celebrate the rituals of the faith, and which the public addresses to invoke blessings for a specific individual, a family or an event. Veneration of the greater fires is addressed only to the fire itself - that is, following the consecration of such a fire, only the Atash Nyashes , the litany to the fire in Younger Avestan , is ever recited before it.
