A dadgah — a lower grade fire temple — at Della Tower in Dadar (East) will be open for members of Parsi/ Irani Zoroastrians from Thursday. 

Inauguration of this dadgah, the third category of holy fire, which is lower than agiaries and atash behrams, comes after a similar place of worship was started in Kopar Khairane, Navi Mumbai, two weeks back. 

Speaking about the dadgah, Jimmy Mistry, founder chairman, Parsi Resource Group, said that the shrine is being built in close proximity of Rustom Framna Agiary in Dadar, so that it could complement the work carried out in the agiary. 

“The priest looking after the agiary will look after this dadgah as well. The main aim of having this dadgah is so that the younger generation of the community can be brought into the religious fold and taught about our religion,” said Mistry. 

The dadgah which will be situated in the lobby of Della Tower, will have an exhibition centre in the adjoining section, displaying the history of Zoroastrianism.
