Karbala is a city in central Iraq, located about 100km southwest of Baghdad, and a few miles east of Lake Milh. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Karbala: Najaf (Wadi Al-Salaam Cemetery & Shrine Amir al-mo'menin Ali bin Abi Talib peace be upon him), Kufa (Al Sahlah Great Mosque, Masjid Hannana, & more) and Babylon (in Al Hillah). There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Imam Hussain's Shrine, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Al Abbas Holy Shrine, and contemplate the long history of Shrine of the two sons of Muslim Ibn Aqeel.
