A: Do you know?

On July 26, 1966, Kish Island residents saw a huge ship beached on the western coral coast of the island.

Most people believe that the ship ran aground because there are few lighthouses in the area or the captain made a navigation error. Several experts assessed that it was not practical to move the ship. The decision was made to keep it in place.
