Almost everyone has heard about the 7 wonders of the world; however, very few know the eighth wonder, as I call it, since it is not registered as one in any record or history books. It is in fact unknown even to the nation wherein it is located. The 8th non-man-made wonder in my opinion, is located in my native land, Iran, and is called the nearest place to sun, or the ancient Pardis Mount (located in Boushehr State, South or Iran, in Jam county in Asalouyeh).
This post is not at all about literature but I liked to share it, in case anyone interested in archeology would be reading my blog.
The focal and amazing points about this mountain are as follows:
1. The peak is the closest place on earth to sun, since it is the highest one from equator.
2. A fire-temple is located on the peak, where Iranian emperor, Jamshid (the fourth emperor) was born and baptized.
3. A magnificent magnifying zone covers about 50 – 100 meters around the mountain, which pulls even autos parked within the zone.
4. The herbs growing there are used for making Advil and have many other medical benefits.
5. Dates of the place are unique and used for making diabetes pills and sugars.
