The palm tree in its mythical nature is one of the Mesopotamian and Elamite vegetable gods, whose traces of its alien nature in human incarnation and its transformation have been left in the beliefs and customs of the people of southern Iran in relation to the myths of creation and fertility. The mythical history of the date palm in terms of anthropology is similar to most of the traditions and popular beliefs of the people of the south, and has led to beliefs such as the creation of the palm from human palm and knowing the palm tree as a companion in the south. The sanctity of the palm and beliefs such as that the palm has organs and conditions like human beings and rituals such as marriage, the dramatic threat and sacrifice of the palm, etc. are rooted in the myths of birth and fertility. The process of characterization of the people of the South from the palm tree in terms of the cycle of death and life and resurrection to the goddess of fertility, complement each other and express the perception of the cosmic position of the female force in the universe. This article is a descriptive-analytical field and library study to analyze the myths related to creation and fertility in the folk beliefs of the people of the south about the date palm based on the people of Jahrom and its mythological elements in customs and beliefs such as: birth and sanctity of palms. It has shown fertility, love, madness, death and the coffin of the palm tree.
