About million of years ago, Persian Gulf was considered one of the largest water body incorporating a large area of the Arabian Peninsula in south and Iran in the west. With the ever increasing temperature of the world and the results of global warming led to the evaporation of water and the shores of the sea retreated, a vast quantity of salt was left behind. As the rainwater washed away the major quantity of sediments, mud and stones from the mountains and got accumulated heavily on the chunks of salt.
