Ten-Day Dawn ceremonies were held across the country on Friday, marking the 40th anniversary of the 1979 Islamic Revolution, which put an end to the Pahlavi monarchic rule in Iran.
These events started all over the country at 9:33 a.m. local time, symbolically marking the precise time when the late founder of the Islamic Republic, Imam Khomeini, returned home from a political exile and received an enthusiastic public reception at Tehran’s Mehrabad International Airport on Feb. 1, 1979.
A special ceremony was held at Imam Khomeini’s mausoleum south of Tehran, with a host of state and military officials as well as thousands of people from all walks of life in attendance.
