The Communists died in Tehran and were buried in Zahra's Paradise cemetery. He did not marry and before his death he dedicated his residential property on Shariati Street in Tehran to the Pasteur Institute of Iran. There are many grate people who dedicated their traditional boutique houses in Iran not to just be served as a luxury hotel in Iran but to be an important part of Iranian history.

Historic Hall of the Farman Forma Garden. This historic hall and the space behind it, owned by the words written on its blue tiles, belong to the Garden of Farmanfarma. It is now dedicated to the Pasteur Institute of Iran. The vaulted building, with the exception of the front porch, the skeleton behind it, and a few trees at the end, has no other indication of the "Farmanfarama Gardens" that was listed in the National Heritage List for years.

The area of the main garden is bounded on the east by Shariati Street, on the north by neighboring plates, on the south by Soleimanzadeh alley and on the west by another alley and adjacent plaque. The area of Sabar Farmanfarma's old house in Iran, which is located in the eastern end of the main garden, is bounded on the east by Shariati Street, on the south by Suleimanzadeh Alley, and on the north and west by neighboring plates.
