A large number pilgrims and tourist from across Iran and the various parts of the world have flocked towards the ancestral house of the founder of the Islamic Republic during Nowruz which marks the beginning of the Persian year.

Imam’s forefathers and ancestors used to assist and mobilize the oppressed people of the region when they were being exploited by local landlords and the Pahlavi regime.

When Rouhollah Mousavi Khomeini was grown up, he equipped himself with religious knowledge and divine virtues and raised awareness among public, intellectuals and scholars about the conspiracies the Pahlavi  regime was devising against the interest of the Iranian nation and the Muslim community to please the colonial powers.

Imam was sent to exile for nearly 15 years when he was leading struggle against the Pahlavi regime.

After Imam’s triumphant return from exile and the victory of the Islamic Revolution in 1979, Imam opted to live in a very simply-built house in Tehran and adopted very simple life style even after becoming the founder of the Islamic Republic.

The world religious and spiritual leader had orders to distribute all of his ancestral lands in the city of Khomeini among the poor famers and needy people.

Imam simply built houses in the city of Khomeini, holy city of Qom and Tehran attract thousands of pilgrims and tourists from across the world each year.

Imam’s academic and divine legacy and his simple life style has always been appealing for devotees across the globe.
