This is the Zoroastrian New Year's Day in the Fasli and Qadimi calendar. 

In Persion mythology the mythical King Yima – Jamshid, the most famous of


the prehistoric Iranian kings, created the calendar.  This is why the Zoroastrians of Iran call the New Year Jamshedi Noruz or "the New Day of Jamshid". 

During the days following Noruz, believers will hold a jashan (a religious service during which the sacred fire is lit) and the congregation renews its commitment to their religion.
