This building has no architectural decorations, and contains only two rooms, a narrow corridor and a simple kitchen. The kitchen is also connected to another northern yard via a door, this was where the Imam`s wife lived.
A temporary passage was built to connect the house with the Husseiniah`s balcony, and it facilitated the Imam`s access to the Husseiniah.
This building belonged to Hujjat al-Islam Sayyid Mahdi, also known as Imam Jamarani, who had inherited the house from his ancestors. He offered the building to the Imam as a gift and wanted nothing in return. However Imam Khomeini insisted on paying and paid a rent of 80,000 riyals a month
Jamaran is situated in the north of Tehran and has cooler weather than the southern parts of the city. The Imam chose this neighbourhood to live in because he wasn`t feeling well and the fresh clean air was good for him
This building has been recorded as a cultural heritage of Iran, which is dated the 5th of May 1997, and holds the reference number 1854.
