Religious Site · Landmark
See a jewel of Islamic architecture at Al Yassin Mosque, whose golden dome and four golden minarets remain a shining landmark on Baghdad's skyline. Years of reconstruction have restored the iconic mosque to its former glory after destruction during the U.S.-led invasion. Visit the graves of 8th-century Shiite Imam Musa Al-Kadhim, and 9th-century Imam Muhammad Al-Jawad, descendant of the Prophet Mohammed. At the time of prayers the mosque fills with visitors. Expect a high level of security and safety measures in place. To find out how to plan a trip to Baghdad, use our trip itinerary maker.

  • Most amazing place for spiritual cleansing and worship. The place is sparkling clean with many shops and restaurants all lover. Please don't take a lot of money with you, some people have low morals and will steal from you with you even noticing. The lady that works inside stole over $500 usd from my mother couple days ago.
  • Very nice place to visit
