A life changing experience
Nov 2019
Visiting the place of Islams greatest tragedy has changed my life. People may say that this holy place is too crowded and noisy , but you will always find peace there. Imam Hussain a.s , a revolutionary leader. How could you not visit his place of martyrdom when he sacrificed his family and companions and everything he had just to make sure that we do not commit crimes and do good deeds. It is truly a breath taking place and a spiritual experience. You will always find people who are friendly , helpful and of good temper there. You will always be provided with your needs at the Holy shrine of Imam Hussain ibn Ali a.s.

Superb Persian Interior Decoration with Mosaic Mirror Pieces.
Nov 2019
The interior of this Shrine, (as well as Imam Ali's Shrine in Najaf ) are superlative! They both attest to Persians' refined skills in decorating with mirror mosaics and chandeliers.Iraqis, unlike Iranians, allow non-Muslims to enter and take pictures.

Not able to explain piece of heaven on earth

My best experience to date and most probably for my life time. Imam Hussain AS and his 72 companions were martyred by Yazid (lanat beshymar) and his army 1400 years ago. Yazid brought over 100,000 army man to battle with 72 men women and childern.

Beautiful, Spiritual Place
Aug 2019 • Solo
Went on a Friday mid-day of all days and it was incredibly packed - crowds of people, and loads of families even picnicking just outside. But once inside, despite all the people about, you can feel the spirituality, and how beautiful and ornate everything is. Could only get a few metres close to the shrine because of many people there were around. The building seems to circle around for awhile, with multiple checkpoints. Obviously, no cameras. Chador mandatory even for a tourist. Beautiful experience.
