The Iran Time Zone
IRST Time Zone Meridian
Iran bases its standard time specifically on the solar time at 52.5° east longitude, which runs about 400 km (250 miles) east of Tehran. The same meridian is used in the Persian Solar Hijri calendar, or Iranian calendar, to set the start of the year, known as Norooz.
