Something different

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.

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.

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

Like a natural gas stove, there's really nothing much here except the flames and heat. You're in the middle of oil drilling country. It's ugly. But if you want to make a tourist attraction of a natural event, this is what you get, Soviet style. No souvenir shop. Tour guides try to make it interesting by showing you other things... More

Definitely something to see. You will be happy that you took the short trek out of Baku to see this as you most likely won't see it anywhere else in the world. Not worth a long stay, but worth the stop!
