This place is the most amazing, mysterious, and scary area in Iran, with its marvelous bog that brings death to every living creature. Many unanswered and unexplained events occurred in the area, and the salty soils of the area have been the place of many murders and deaths.
The area is also believed by the indigenous peoples of the desert, as the cursed land. They believe that evil spirits rule in the mysterious land, and so anyone who steps into the Rig-e-Jen never returns.
