Karbala is a city in central Iraq, located about 100km southwest of Baghdad, and a few miles east of Lake Milh. Change things up with these side-trips from 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). Next up on the itinerary: make a trip to Imam Hussain's Shrine, steep yourself in history at Shrine of the two sons of Muslim Ibn Aqeel, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Tal Al Zainabeiah site.
