(30+ reviews on the web)
Landmark
See a jewel of Islamic architecture at Al-Jawadain Holy Shrine, whose golden dome and four golden minarets remain a shining landmark on Baghdad's skyline. Years of reconstruction have restored the iconic mosque to its former glory after destruction during the U.S.-led invasion. Visit the graves of 8th-century Shiite Imam Musa Al-Kadhim, and 9th-century Imam Muhammad Al-Jawad, descendant of the Prophet Mohammed. At the time of prayers the mosque fills with visitors. Expect a high level of security and safety measures in place. Use our Baghdad travel itinerary planner to arrange your visit to Al-Jawadain Holy Shrine and other attractions in Baghdad.
