Atesh in Persian mythology, is the holy fire which breaks forth from the naphtha- springs; and, lighted by Ormuzd himself, is worshipped as divine. As a consequence of this high honor, various other words are joined toAtesh-as for instance, Ateshbehram, the prayer, which is said five times a day, when the wood is brought for building a fire; Ateshdan is a metallic vessel formed like a vase, with a great cover, to preserve the holy fire; Ateshgah is the small chapel in the temple where the Ateshdan was with the fire in it; Ateshkaneh, the fire temple itself.
