The birthday of Zoroaster
Khordad Sal is celebrated as the birthday of Zoroaster. This is known as the ‘Greater Noruz’ and happens six days after Navroze.
The chosen date is symbolic since the actual date of the Prophet’s birth cannot be identified accurately.
This festival is considered one of the most important in the Zoroastrian calendar. Zoroastrians gather in Fire temples for prayers and then celebrate with feasting.
