Karbala is a city in central Iraq, located about 100km southwest of Baghdad, and a few miles east of Lake Milh. When in Karbala, make a side trip to see Babylon in Al Hillah, approximately 1h 10 min away. There's lots more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Imam Hussain's Shrine, contemplate the long history of Shrine of the two sons of Muslim Ibn Aqeel, and admire the masterpieces at Memory Islam Museum.
