Dehsalm, located in southeastern Iran, is the village closest to the Lut Desert, about 80 kilometers southwest of Nehbandan City. It is one of the hottest places in the world, yet it is lush with natural beauty, such as the palm trees from which the people gather and eat dates. The history, culture, and customs of Dehsalm are recounted by the oldest person in the village, 100 year-old Gholam Marvi, who touches on important subjects, such as wedding rituals, commerce and the aqueducts that are part of the village.
