Sacred & Religious Sites
Surrounded by scenic mountains, Mazar-i-Sharif stands as one of the largest cities in the country. Becoming the capital of the region after neighboring Balkh was abandoned because of disease during the 19th century CE, the city has developed around its main attraction, a shrine to Ali ibn Abi Talib, the cousin and son-in-law of the prophet Muhammad. Islamic architecture and mausoleums, along with remains from the Hellenistic era provide the most intriguing cultural attractions in Mazar-i-Sharif.

Where to stay in Mazar-i-Sharif

Mazar-i-Sharif offers a small but diverse set of accommodations for its guests. All located close to the main attractions in the center of town, the lodgings available include dormitory-style hostels, with shared rooms, bathrooms, and toilets; and mid-range hotels with private bedrooms, and either shared or private bathrooms. The odd luxury hotel, aimed almost exclusively at upmarket international guests, provides additional facilities, higher-standard rooms, and often thematic decoration.
