High up on the west bank stands the elegant Tomb of Mohammed Shah Aga Khan . The 48th imam (leader) of the Ismaili sect led an illustrious life, was hugely influential in the partition of India and creation of Pakistan, and was father-in-law to Rita Hayworth. The Aga Khan liked to winter in Aswan for his health and was buried here after his death in 1957. His fourth wife, who died in 2000, is also buried here. The family’s white villa is in the garden beneath the tomb.
