This web site is dedicated to the Bakhtiary family and to the memory of its founders, great leaders, and many notables who dedicated their lives to the glory and unification of the family and to those who served their homeland and paid the ultimate price with their lives.

This site is specially dedicated to the memory of our great grandfather, Hossein-Gholi Khan, The Grand Ilkhani who managed through diplomacy and tribal battles, to create for the first time, the Confederacy of The Bakhtiaris.
