Karbala is a city in central Iraq, located about 100km southwest of Baghdad, and a few miles east of Lake Milh. Change things up with these side-trips from Karbala: Kufa (Great Mosque of Kufa, Al Sahlah Great Mosque, & more), Babylon (in Al Hillah) and Najaf (Wadi Al-Salaam Cemetery & Shrine Amir al-mo'menin Ali bin Abi Talib peace be upon him). There's more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Imam Hussain's Shrine and steep yourself in history at Shrine of the two sons of Muslim Ibn Aqeel.
