Very nice shrine, in addition there is staff there to explain (In very good english i may add) about Islam and the differences between shi'ite Islam and Sunni Islam, if it's on your way, it's worth the visit. Lots of mirrors used inside, unexpected.

A good place to visit during evening with all of their lights up. Don't bring your camera here as they don't allow outsider to take photo and you must be a Muslim to enter their main place.
