AHURANI

Zoroastrian Water Goddess

A Pure Water Goddess of Lovely Showers

She looks after rain and brings health and cleansing with her showers.

Her name means ‘She who belongs to Ahura’ — which indicates that she could be the consort or daughter of Supreme God Ahura Mazda. But don’t get carried away – she could just be a member of his cleaning staff.

It’s possible that she is plural – they may be a few Ahurani running around. How many cleaners does Ahura Mazda need?
