Jahrom is a city in and the capital of Jahrom County, Fars Province, Iran.
Jahrom is located 170 kilometres (110 mi) southeast of Shiraz, the capital of Fars Province. The majority of people in Jahrom are Persians.
Many tropical and sub-tropical plants are grown in Jahrom (i.e. palm date, citrus, wheat). Based on Ahmad Kasravi, the late Iranian historians and philologist, the name Jahrom can be analyzed to render a “warm-place”. But a more satisfactory etymology interprets the name as a “green-place”.
Jahrom’s history goes back some 2500 years when the Achaemenids established the Persian Empire. The Sangeshkan or Sang-Shekan cave, said to be the largest man-made cave in the world, lies to the south of Jahrom.
