Photo Essay: The Zoroastrian Fire Temple in Ezra Street, Calcutta

The Zoroastrian Fire Temple (aka Parsee Church) in Ezra Street was built in 1839. As one of Calcutta's most unique heritage sites, its condition today cries out for restoration. Currently it is surrounded by lighting dealers. The building itself is derelict, but could be returned to its former (modest) glory quite easily, I should think...
