The history of Qom city dates back to the Sassanid era, but most of the history of this area was formed after emerging of Islam in Iran.
Qom province is surrounded by Tehran, Semnan, Isfahan, and Markazi provinces. Most of it is covered by deserts.
Generally, its climate is warm and arid. Summer is not a good time to visit this province.
