Tehran Picture Agency | Hamid Reza Darajati: Dating back to the 19th century, the House of “Imam Jomeh” – the Imam of Friday prayers – is a gem in the heart of Tehran. The House of Imam Jomeh is located in Nasser Khosrow Street, near Imam Khomeini Square of Tehran in Oudlajan, an aristocratic neighbourhood of distant past. An exquisite building of Qajar era, it served first as the residence of Mirza Aqa Khan Nuri, the Prime Minister of Nasser al-Din Shah before being bought by the then Imam of Tehran Friday prayers.
