Ahmadabad-e Mosaddeq (Persian: احمدابادمصدق‎, also Romanized as Aḩmadābād-e Moşaddeq; also known as Aḩmadābād-e Kāshānī and Aḩmadābād)[1] is a village in the Ahmadabad Rural District, in the Central District of Nazarabad County, Alborz Province, Iran, 7.5 km south-west of Abyek. At the 2006 census, its population was 1,401, in 358 families.[2]

The Iranian politician Mohammad Mosaddegh spent his days of exile in his estates and is buried under his dining room. The compound has been subjected to serious deterioration, due to newly-imposed government restrictions.

There was previously a high school named after Mossadegh, called Mossadegh High School, by popular vote during the period of the overthrow of the Shah in the 1970s. However, it was renamed following the denunciations against Mossadegh made by Ayatollah Khomeini. The place now stands as Emam Khomeini High School.
