Where does the sun rise in Iran?

The sun always rises in the east, everywhere and regardless of the country or continent. The easternmost city in Iran is Zabol in the region of Sistan and Baluchestan. There, the sun rises at 5:21 am and sets at 7:21 pm these days. The latest sunset is currently experienced in the west in the city of Salmas (Azarbayjan-e Gharbi) at 8:45 pm.

Duration of the sunset

The distance from the equator and the path of the sun determines not only the time of sunrise and sunset. The farther a country is from the equator, the more oblique the sun's path is to the horizon. And this causes a different duration that a sunset takes. Tehran lies on the 36th degree of northern latitude and is therefore quite far away from the equator. While a sunset near the equator only lasts about 20 minutes, in Iran this period averages 29 minutes. In June, it's about 30 minutes in Tehran, while in December it's 28 minutes.
