Today, 10 October 2017, Mawlana Hazar Imam is expected to grace the Jamat in Uganda with the first Darbar of his Diamond Jubilee year, at the historic location of the Kampala Darkhana.

The Darkhana building dates back to July 1936, when the foundation stone was laid in an area of Kampala where a large number of Ismailis from South Asia had begun to settle, seeking economic opportunity in East Africa. Upon Hazar Imam’s ascension to the Imamat in 1957, Ismailis around the world commemorated his installation as the Imam (Takht Nashini) in various countries, including Uganda. In October 1957, a Takht Nashini ceremony was held on the grounds of Darkhana, Kampala; the memory of which has remained in the hearts of all who attended.
