This shrine is very important and popular among the locals and tourists. it is believed that the grave of the grandson of the Prophet is resting there. Very tearful and respectful place.

The place is an amazing spot for relieving the soul. And it is also historical, still holds the historic Islamic ancient architecture. A very vast shrine for one to push stress away and a good place for family gathering.
