Najaf ranks among the most frequented places of Islamic pilgrimage in the world.
Explore hidden gems such as Al Sahlah Great Mosque and Masjid Hannana. Shrine Amir al-mo'menin Ali bin Abi Talib peace be upon him and Babylon are good opportunities to explore the local culture. There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of House of Imam Ali Ibn Abi Taleb, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Maytham al-Tammar Shrine, don't miss a visit to Great Mosque of Kufa, and stroll the grounds of Wadi Al-Salaam Cemetery.
