Iringa Jamatkhana – a 600 year Old Khoja Tradition Maintained!

When one visits the Khoja Ismaili Jamatkhana in Iringa, there is a picture hanging on the wall as you go up the stairs. It is a picture of my maternal grandfather, Mohamed Hamir and my maternal grandmother, Bachibai Mohamed Hamir.

IringaThe writing states:

“In 1933, Alijah Mohamed Hamir Pradhan, on behalf of Hamir Family, unconditionally gifted the Iringa Jamatkhana to the Imam of the time Aga Khan III, Sultan Mohamed Shah. Also included in the building structure were the facilities for a primary school for use by the community.”
