Heard about this place answer as I had hired a car for the day decided to visit...about 20 minutes north of central Baku with the worst entrance to a car park...nearly removed the exhaust on entry! The site is small but dramatic....the flaming rocks are just plain weird....only takes 10 mins to see and very limited facilities on site but... More

Expect a truck-crowded, bumpy road with nothing else to see on your way. The "monument" is situated in the backyard of a neglected garage. In exchange, the guards are friendly enough to let you enter at the darkening, officially off time. And this is a real eruption of natural gas, not as in the Fire Temple of Baku.

Taxi from Baku city. A chance to see the real suburbia of Baku. The flames aren't massive but the view around is worth it as well. Glad I went there.

Baku is totally empty of help for the tourist; I couldn't find a map, I couldn't find rail or bus routes or timetables. Bus stops are not identifiable often and when you find one you don't know which buses stop there. So for me to have found my way using four buses without a word of Azeri is an achievement,... More

Burning ground... I never saw before. Get there by bus #217 from Koroğlu metro station. Get there for sundown. Last bus back will leave around 9:30 pm.

its worth spending a few hours to pop by, perhaps drive via the oil fields. Just taken our visitors to see, and first time i’d been back in 20 years. Hasn’t changed, still burning away, nothing really else there, staff security were all very pleasant - worth a visit.

Strange, there is nothing to see...You come here, see some part of hill is burning because the gas is coming out...but there is something very attractive and magic about this place, which makes me return here many times. You should come here at night so that you could see the flame...you can order some tea there, but I prefer to... More
