In China’s Zhangye Dandia Landform Geological Park, thousands of tourists from all over the world come to marvel at the beauty of the Rainbow Mountains.
These multicolored Rainbow Mountains are believed to be the same mountains that are mentioned in the Holy Quran –they are made of different shades present on the surface of the planet Earth.
Here is what the Quran says:
“Do you not see that Allah sends down rain from the sky, and We produce thereby fruits of varying colors? And in the mountains are tracts, white and red of varying shades and (some) extremely black” (Surah Fatir verse 27).
Rainbow mountains located in Gansu, Western China, were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2009. Such mountains revealed in the Quran 1450 years ago are also located in Peru, near Ausangate.
