Zoroastrian Temple in San Jose

There’s an interesting article on the Dar-e-Mehr Zoroastrian Temple in San Jose on the Killing the Buddha website:

The Dar-e-Mehr lies in the San Jose foothills overlooking Silicon Valley and the Bay. Evidence of the property’s former life as a working farm—wire and post fences, buildings and open fields—still remains. The old farmhouse is there, though renovated to serve as the community center, with a kitchen, lecture space, classrooms and a library; the stables stand just beside it, untouched. The temple is new and small compared to the other buildings, with a tidy, squat dome.

The author, Samuel Thrope, muses on the challenges of maintaining a religious identity in the modern world.
