TEHRAN (IQNA) – Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei visited the mausoleum of Imam Khomeini (RA) and the Behesht Zahra cemetery south of Tehran on Saturday morning.


The visit came on the first day of the Ten-Day Fajr (dawn) celebrations, which mark the anniversary of the Islamic Revolution’s victory in February 1979.

The Leader paid tribute to the late founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran and the country’s martyrs. 

Every year, millions of Iranians across the country observe ten days of celebrations marking the anniversary of the victory of the revolution that put an end to the monarchy of the US-backed Pahlavi regime in the country.

The day of Imam Khomeini’s return to Iran marks the beginning of the Ten Days of Dawn, which culminates with the anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution on February 11.

The Iranian nation toppled the US-backed Pahlavi regime 41 years ago, ending the 2,500 years of monarchic rule in the country.

The Islamic Revolution spearheaded by the late Imam Khomeini established a new political system based on Islamic values and democracy.
