Neauphle-le-Ch teau is a commune in the Yvelines department in the
le-de-France region in north-central France. Neauphle-le-Ch teau
would gain international notoriety in 1978 when, on October 8th,
Iranian spiritual leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini rented and
moved into a local chateau following his exile by the regime of
Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi in the midst of the Iranian Revolution,
and after being deported from Iraq where he was taking refuge
amongst the Shi'a community. The Ayatollah would continue to reside
there until the following year, when he returned to Iran following
the collapse of the Shah's regime, and later became Iran's Supreme
Leader. Due to the Ayatollah's time residing in Neauphle-le-Ch
teau, a street in Tehran on which the French Embassy in Iran is
located is named after the village.
