The historic Upanga Jamatkhana in Dar-es-salaam, Tanzania, built upon the very site of the Diamond Jubilee of Mowlana Sultan Muhammad Shah Aga Khan III, the 48th hereditary Imam of the Shia Imami Ismaili Muslims, marked its own golden jubilee in December of 2013.
On the ground floor of this glorious building remains the original scale used for the 1946 Diamond Jubilee, with a plaque recalling the historic event and placing the importance of this jamatkhana among the most notable of markers in Ismaili history.
