Atash Kadeh


TIMINGS : 10:00 A.M. – 7:30 P.M. DAILY


Welcome one and all to the Bhandara Atash Kadeh in Houston, Texas.

We are very proud and fortunate to have the Atash Kadeh amongst our midst. It has been an immense source of
spiritual satisfaction and contentment for so many in our community! In order to maintain the sanctity,
everyone is requested to be quiet inside the building to keep the tranquil atmosphere. Please remember to keep
your head covered at all times inside the Atash Kadeh – scarves and topis are provided at the entrance. Please
also remember to remove your shoes before entering the carpeted Kebla area (the inner prayer room)

Our Atash Kadeh keeps glowing with a 24 hour continuous Wood-burning fire tended to, with intense
dedication, by our Mobeds Pervez Gonda and Maneck Sidhwa.

Machis, Jashans, Tandarostis and several other prayers are a constant feature at our Atash Kadeh.

Sukhar and Divo are available for purchase inside the Atash Kadeh, for those that like to make an offering.

Hours of Operation are from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., however, Members can access the Atash Kadeh premises
with their membership fobs during other hours as well.

Please refer to the schedule below if you would like to attend any of the Boye Ceremonies:
