Karbala ©
Karbala is a city in central Iraq, located about 100km southwest of Baghdad, and a few miles east of Lake Milh. Venture out of the city with trips to 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: take in the spiritual surroundings of Imam Hussain's Shrine and don't miss a visit to Shrine of the two sons of Muslim Ibn Aqeel.

For reviews, maps, more things to do, and tourist information, go to the Karbala trip maker site .

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airports are Baghdad International Airport and Al Najaf International Airport. In January in Karbala, expect temperatures between 19°C during the day and 6°C at night. You will leave for home on the 2nd (Sun).
