Born in 1874 Mundra

Mahomed Jaffer, a successful businessman in Bombay and Europe, generously willed one lac rupees to build a sanatorium for sick and convalescent Ismailis.

However, because he passed away before he could build it, it was left to his son, Ismail, to realize his father's humane dream.

In 1931, he actually built a large sanatorium in Panchgani, known as Bagh-e-Rahat, at a cost of approximately Rs. 130,000.
