Important Editor’s Note: Please click on the following thumbnails for superb enlargements (then do a further full screen enlargement with the magnify option (+) available on your browser). Please note that the late Aga Khan’s photo, 4th down, is 6mb. It is the editor’s opinion that the second photo down of His Highness the Aga Khan is remarkable when enlarged fully for your screen – this may not appear to be the case when viewing the smaller version shown above.

  4. My family and I loved the pictures. Thank you for posting them. He looks very tired, but also very happy!

  5. Thank you for sharing these special pictures of Mowlana Hazar Imam, Imam Sultan Muhammad Shah and Princes Zahra.

  6. Well done! Very impressive collection of some less known pictures of Late Imam and Hazar Imam.

  7. Very nice, especially the one of father and duaghter. We see our spiritual father in his role as a father. I thought these were going to be pictures of the 48th and the to-be 49th Imam together. Of course many such exist and we hope to see them on this go-to site for memorabilia on everything Aga Khans – and much more.
