Popularly known as  'The Taj Mahal' of Mumbai, Hasnabad Mausoleum is part of the Heritage walk organised by the Communications team of the National Council for India.

With the arrival of our 46th Imam Hasanali Shah in India in the mid nineteenth century from Iran, there was a turning point in Ismaili history. The Imamat base shifted from Iran to India, and remained here till our 48th Imam Sultan Mahomed Shah shifted base to Europe in the early 20th Century. Various structures and monuments were established and maintained during this period in India. ’The Heritage walk’, one of the programs by the Communications team of the National Council for India aims to make our community and particularly the youth aware of the importance of our cultural and historical heritage and inculcate a sense of pride and appreciation of our historic cultural heritage. It also aims to help the community develop a harmonious relationship with our historical past. In pursuit of this objective, the Communications team has been regularly conducting walks in three historic areas of Darkhana, Agahall and Hasanabad in Mumbai since June 2017.

 

On 14th January 1922, the then Darkhana Jamatkhana in Nairobi, Kenya, conducted its first Jamati ceremonies, exactly two years after the foundation stone was laid. It was therefore auspicious that on 14th January 2018, ninety-six years later to the day that the Nairobi Jamat should remember and celebrate the history of this iconic Jamatkhana with guided tours of an exhibition showcasing the Shia Imami Ismaili Muslims in the region.

The Chateau of Chantilly.

Situated in the valley of Nonette some 40 kilometres north of Paris, the Domaine de Chantilly records a history that stretches back over six centuries. In 1884, it was bequeathed – complete with its unparalleled collection of art, manuscripts and furnishings – to the Institut de France by the duc d’Aumale, fifth son of King Louis-Philippe I of France.
