Azerbaijan, Baku, Feb.10/ Trend F.Milad
Millions of Iranians are holding nationwide rallies to celebrate the 34th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution.
People from different walks of life have taken to the streets across the country to mark the 1979 Revolution that toppled the Pahlavi dynasty.
Special ceremonies have been organized nationwide. A mass rally is being held in the iconic Azadi (Liberation) Square in the capital Tehran.
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will be addressing the crowd later today.
In February 1979, the Iranian revolution overthrew the Pahlavi dynasty under Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi and replaced it with an Islamic republic under Ayatollah Rouhollah Khomeini, the leader of the revolution.
The historic event put an end to more than two thousand five hundred years of monarchy in Iran.
