Zarand is a town in the Kerman province of Iran. With a population of about 30,000 people, it is located about 75 km northwest of the provincial capital of Kerman.

On February 22, 2005, a major earthquake killed hundreds of residents in the town of Zarand and several nearby villages in north Kerman. (See 2005 Zarand earthquake.)

Southwest of Tehran, Iran, halfway between Tehran and Saveh, there is a plain also called Zarand. Zavyeh and Mamounieh are two small towns on this plain.

A crater on Mars is named after this city. [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_craters_on_Mars]
