The hottest, reliably measured, air temperature in the world was 54°C (129°F) at Furnace Creek Ranch, Death Valley, California, U.S.A. on 7/20/1960, 7/18/1998, 7/20/2005, and 7/7/2007.
The Lut Desert in Iran has recorded surface temperatures (not air temperature) up to 70.7°C (159.3°F) By NASA's MODIS sensor on the Aqua satellite. This uninviting region is abiotic - meaning without life; not even bacteria have been found.
Furnace Creek Ranch, Death Valley, California, U.S.A. recorded a surface temperature (not air temperature) of (201°F) 94°C on 7/15/1972.
Some Other Hot Places:
The place in the world that has the hottest year-round temperature is the Dallol Depression, Ethiopia. At 328 feet below sea level, it has a year-round average temperature of 34.4°C (93.9°F).
The record that's often quoted as, the world's hottest air temperature ever recorded, was 58°C (136°F) at El Azizia, Libya on 9/13/1922.
However, this temperature reading was inaccurate for several reasons. The main reason was that it was measured over tarred concrete. The air temperature reading, if measured under modern standard conditions, might not have exceeded 49°C (120°F) on that day in El Azizia.
The next highest, quoted record would be 57°C (134°F) at Furnace Creek Ranch (called Greenland Ranch at the time), Death Valley, California, USA on 7/10/1913.
However, at that time official stations in the United States of America all measured 3.5 feet (1.0668 meters) off the ground. Today stations in the U.S.A. measure at 4 to 6 feet (1.2192 to 1.8288 meters)* off the ground. Today this reading would have been lower.
*According to the World Meteorological Organization, temperature should be measured 1.25 to 2 meters (4.1010 to 6.5617 feet) off the ground.
