Gallery: Mawlana Hazar Imam’s visits to India over the decades
10 April 2015
  • Over the past several decades, Mawlana Hazar Imam has visited India many times to meet with the country’s leaders, review the progress of Aga Khan Development Network initiatives, and launch new projects.

    The Ismaili Imamat has a long and historic relationship with India, which was home to Mawlana Hasan Ali Shah Aga Khan I, his son Mawlana Ali Shah, and grandson Mawlana Sultan Mahomed Shah, the 46th, 47th and 48th Ismaili Imams respectively.

    The first Aga Khan School in Mundra, Gujarat was established by Mawlana Sultan Mahomed Shah in 1905, and today’s AKDN institutions work in close partnership with governments and communities to address a broad spectrum of development priorities in the country, including cultural revitalisation, education, health care, drinking water and sanitation, rural development and access to finance for poor communities.

    This photo gallery showcases some of Mawlana Hazar Imam’s visits to Imamat projects in India over the years.
