Bahrot Caves are located 8 km away from Bordi and at a distance of 20 km to the south of Sanjan. Lying amidst the Bahrot Hills that rise to a height of 1500 ft these caves hold immense significance for Parsis. Legends reveal that Zarathosti ancestors took refuge in these caves in 1351 AD for 13 long years, while hiding themselves from the Muslim invaders.

The ancestors of Zarathosti, or Parsis, blessed an Iranian Fire temple in the hills, but the fire was later transferred to these Bahrot caves. This fire, better known as ‘Iranshah Flame’, has been kept burning since then. These caves are thus a remembrance of the brave men who laid their lives to keep the flame burning.
