40 Years On, Iran Celebrates Islamic Revolution Anniversary


Late founder of the Islamic Republic Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini arrived in Tehran from Paris at 9:33 a.m. on February 1, 1979, and led a nationwide uprising that culminated in the victory of the Islamic Revolution ten days later.

An event is also usually held at the mausoleum of Imam Khomeini, south of Tehran, to pay tribute to the late leader.

Imam Khomeini had lived many years in exile, in Iraq and France, before returning home and leading a historical revolution that overthrew Pahlavi regime on February 11, 1979.

The 10-day period from the return of Imam Khomeini until the revolution’s victory is celebrated annually in Iran, and is known as the Ten-Day Fajr (Dawn).
