Well, I think it's pretty fascinating. I've always had an interest in Zoroastrianism, and the Faravahar has always been one of the most beautiful religious symbols to me.

No doubt. That mosque had much more to show. I called it fascinating because that better describes how I find it beautiful than simply talking about its appearance. It would like to find out how old it is. If it's fairly new, its lack of grandeur ( at least on the scale of a mosque) would make sense since Zoroastrianism has become rather marginal in Iran.

The history of Bombay /Mumbai's fire temples parallels the history of Parsi settlement in Bombay and indeed the formation of Bombay as a city and the financial hub of India. Its really very beautiful and royal.

Since Zoroastrianism is strictly monotheistic, one can only wonder why the OP put this in the polytheism section. ????

It's not as monotheistic as folks think, that's my understanding.

For example, Mithra is a god in Zoroastrianism.

There are multiple such gods in Zoroastrianism who all are worthy of worship. Ahura Mazda is merely the best one of them all.

So it would be more henotheism then. My memory was poor, and all I could remember is discussing the origins of monotheism, and getting Zoroastrianism as where monotheism started. Thanks for the clarification.
