The City of Iram

Dr. Juris Zarins, who is a member of the excavation team, states the following;

“What distinguishes this city from other archeological findings is its tall pillars. Therefore,  this city is the city of Ad nation, Iram, which is mentioned in the Qur’an.”

“Seest thou not how thy Lord dealt with the `Ad (people)― Of the (city of) Iram, with lofty pillars, The like of which were not produced in (all) the land?” (Surah Al-Fajr: 6-8)
