The experience of this place is divine. One will forget himself after coming to this place. The architecture and design of the entire tomb Complex is majestic and artistic. The big open lawns or the open areas are enough to gather 1000s of people in the area. The total complex is so big that there are around 6 gates of the entry into the shrine complex. The tomb place is beautifully designed and well maintained. The golden colour of the tomb also creates a pleasant experience for the visitors. The flooring marble all around the complex is such that it is very cold during all the time of the year. The complex has multipurpose halls for library, study areas, lecture halls, museum and art and handicraft areas. It also has a huge canteen where everyday the zayereeens are offered free food after the completion of their ziyarat.
This place is very amazing place. You can see many beautiful things. Many people pray there. It’s a religious place for moslems. Its open 24 houres. You can go there and relaxing your mind. Me and my friend jeff from Indonesia go there and he visiting all the place.
