Karbala is a city in central Iraq, located about 100km southwest of Baghdad, and a few miles east of Lake Milh. Get out of town with these interesting Karbala side-trips: Babylon (in Al Hillah), Najaf (Shrine Amir al-mo'menin Ali bin Abi Talib peace be upon him & Wadi Al-Salaam Cemetery) and Kufa (Great Mosque of Kufa, House of Imam Ali Ibn Abi Taleb, & more). There's much more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Imam Hussain's Shrine, take an in-depth tour of Memory Islam Museum, and don't miss a visit to Shrine of the two sons of Muslim Ibn Aqeel.
