An Najaf

 
An Najaf An Najaf is one of the highlights for Shiites touring the Iraq. The shrine of Ali with a golden dome that can be seen from 40 km on a clear day. For more tombs, head for Wadi es Salaam, a big graveyard with 'streets', winding through the countless brick and cement tombs, some modest, some the size of small mosque-shrines. Some are gaily painted pink or green; some display photographs of the dead: turbaned graybeards or bright-eyed youngsters with proud mustaches and hair in fashionable quiffs. Finally you might want to visit the al Yazdi Medresa, a Coranic school with seventy rooms, immensely deep cellars and brick-lined wells that plummet down some one hundred feet.
