A shrine dedicated to Ali Zein Al-Abdin Al Sajid, the grandson of the Prophet Muhammad and the only suriving son of the Imam Hussein. The site is holy to Shia and other Muslims, because Ali Zein al Abdin is believed to have stopped there with other members of Imam Hussein's family after they were taken into captivity after the battle of Karbala. Pilgrims visit the shrine to pray for miracles.
