Najaf - A holy city
Najaf is large city in central Iraq. Widely considered to be the third holiest city of Shi’a Islam, it hosts millions of pilgrims per year mostly visiting the Holy Shrine of Ali ibn Abi Talib (Imam Ali).
Housed in a grand structure with a gold gilded dome and many precious objects in the walls, the Imam Ali Mosque is an inspirational holy site to visit. Nearby is the Wadi-al-Salam cemetery, reputed to be the largest in the world, which contains the tombs of several prophets.
