That probably had less to do with your time zone and more to do with your latitude.
Actually, being on the west side of a time zone has a significant effect on sunrise and sunset times relative to being on the east side of the time zone.
Tehran is at the Eastern edge of the ETC+3 geographic time zone. Iran, however, has it's own UTC+3.5 which puts Tehran right in the middle of the time zone.
I will add thought that many time zones are shifted West and tend to skew people's perception on when sunrise and sunset are expected causing many to have a perception out of line with a "natural" time zone boundary.
