Dar-e-Meher, also known as Fire Temple, is a Zoroastrian temple located near the Delhi Gate in New Delhi. This rectangular shaped temple has doric columns at the entrance. The sculpture at the square projection at the top of the building depicts the sacred fire.

The main temple contains a large prayer room, two separate rooms for men and women and an inner sanctum known as kebla. Kebla has a pot where sandal wood sticks are burned to give rise to the perennial fire.

Parsis are only allowed to enter the temple. There is a courtyard in front of the temple, where traditional marriages are performed.
