Karbala is a city in central Iraq, located about 100km southwest of Baghdad, and a few miles east of Lake Milh. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Karbala: Najaf (Shrine Amir al-mo'menin Ali bin Abi Talib peace be upon him & Wadi Al-Salaam Cemetery), Babylon (in Al Hillah) and Kufa (Al Sahlah Great Mosque, Maytham al-Tammar Shrine, & more). And it doesn't end there: take in the spiritual surroundings of Imam Hussain's Shrine, steep yourself in history at Shrine of the two sons of Muslim Ibn Aqeel, and admire the masterpieces at Memory Islam Museum.
