The enigmatic Mount Pardis, situated adjacent to the Persian Gulf in southern Iran, is said to be the nearest point on earth to the sun.
Mount Pardis is located in Iran’s Boushehr Province, the nearest Iranian province to the equator, and is also called Pouz (meaning snout in Persian) as it resembles a peculiar snout shape.
Local people call the mountain Jam as it has been named after the county where it is located. Some of the locals also believe that the mountain has a high power of magnetic attraction with passing cars being slightly pulled from a distance of 100 meters away.
A couple of years ago, a UK-based Iranian researcher and archaeologist claimed that the mountain is the nearest point on earth to the sun.
In addition, the area has exceptional dates, which are used in diabetes pills and sugars, as well as herbs with a variety of medicinal benefits.
Mount Pardis can be seen while passing along the road that connects Bandar-Kangan to Firouzabad in southern Iran.
