Amou Haji world’s dirtiest man, dies at 94


Amou Haji was the Iranian man who resided in the village of Dejgah and was known as the “dirtiest man in the world”. This is because he did not shower for over the last 60 years! Yes, it did not rain for 60 years!

He died at the age of 94 on the 23rd of October, 2022. The query arises why he did not shower for had evaded pouring over fears of “getting sick”.


Haji lived in seclusion for most of his life in an unobstructed brick hut, which residents made after he started dozing off in a hole in the ground.

Haji ate roadkill, smoked a pipe filled with animal waste and Excrement, and believed cleanliness and tidiness would make him ill. Some pictures on social media also show him smoking multiple cigarettes at once.

The reason behind his behaviour is said to be some emotional trauma which he went through during his early life. A short documentary was also filmed titled “The Strange Life of Amou Haji”, which was made about his life in 2013.

But just a few months back, the villagers forcefully took him to the bathroom and made him shower after approximately 60 years. Ironically, he died just a few months after he took his first bath in the shower in his whole life.
