Karbala

Karbala is loacted in central Iraq, roughly speaking about halfway between Baghdad and An najaf. It is one of the holiest places of Shia Islam and major place of pilgrimage.
The Mosque where Husain, the son of Ali, the first Muslim after Muhammad, is buried is the main attraction for religious and non-religious visitors alike. The big golden dome and the three minarets can be seen from afar.
