  • What can I say about this paradise? I feel it the most calm and peaceful location on the Earth. Even if you're not Muslim or Shea, you will feel it. Imam Ali we believe as greatest man of whole history.
  • The best place to visit, the Religious Holy Shrine which is located in Najaf, Iraq. Can't express the peace what we get in this place during the Prayers. I recommend everybody to visit this Shrine. Many peoples visits this place to fulfill thier wishes. And even though they provide good services.
