In the middle of the bustling city, Imam Hussain's Shrine represents one of the first and largest Muslim pilgrimage sites in the world. See the final resting place of Husayn Ibn Ali (the third Shia imam), a holy site greatly respected by Muslims all over the planet. If you visit during Ashura, the anniversary of the imam's death, you’ll find millions of pilgrims who come to pray and pay their respects to the famous martyr. Reflect on the architectural style of the grand complex, and enjoy the view of its golden domes and minarets, accompanied by numerous colorful decorations. Outside, check out the quaint shops and stalls selling refreshments and souvenirs.
