Dezghan (Persian: دهستان دژگان ‎‎) is a village in the southern part of Iran. It is 45 kilometres away from the Persian Gulf and heavily depends on palm growing and other vegetables. Dezghan's settlers emigrated from the neighboring cities Bandar Lengeh and Bastak and spoke Persian slang that resembles Arabic.

Unlike most Iranians, the Dezgan people are Sunni. This difference caused many of them to migrate across the Persian Gulf to the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain. Many such Dezgani now hold senior positions in the Dubai government; one such example is Qasim Sultan Al Banna, Director General of Dubai Municipality.
