This is an area between the two shrines (Baina haramein) - between the shrines, and I had the privileged of visiting this last month. Millions gather here during the Arba'een.

The Shrine of Hussein Ibn Ali, The Grandson of Prophet Mohammed in Kerbala, Iraq -Expansion Project going on, hence the front is seen still under construction.

The shrine of Al-‘Abbās Ibn Ali, is revered by Muslims for his loyalty to his half-brother Husayn ibn ‘Alī, his respect for the Ahl al-Bayt, and his role in the Battle of Karbalā. He was known as the greatest warrior in Arabia and mirrored the strength of his father, ‘Alī ibn Abī Tālib.
