Najaf

4.4
Najaf ranks among the most frequented places of Islamic pilgrimage in the world. Considered sacred by Shia Muslims, the city features a shrine to Ali ibn Abi Talib (600-61 CE), cousin and son-in-law to the Prophet Mohammed, and the first Imam after Mohammed, according to Shia belief. Religious trips to Najaf include visits to a central shrine and cemetery--often considered the largest in the world. Long known as a center of Shia learning and theology, the city sustained damage during the reign of Saddam Hussein and his Sunni-majority government, although its reputation as an educational and spiritual center has once again started to grow. Najaf is in Najaf Province. Our Iraq trip planner combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.
