In the west the Dasht-e Lut desert and the Dasht-e Kavir desert, or large salt desert merge. Yazd is the center of the Zoroastrianism. This religion was at its peak a few centuries ago when it was the largest religion in the Persian empire. Nowadays it is a small religion with about 100,000 followers. A beautiful fire temple can be found in Yazd. Just outside the city several Zoroastrian buildings can be found. Nowadays most inhabitants are Muslims, the Amir Chakmak mosque is very beautiful.
