Walk to Karbala-for Imam Hussein

Millions of people are making their way to Karbla, Iraq to visit the shrine of Imam Hussein on this day, it has been 40 days since the day he was killed. Imam Hussein was killed 1300+ years ago, and still people are grieving over his cruel death. Our family has been watching the people walk towards Karbala from their many destinations (Baghdad, Najaf, Basra, Mosul and even outside Iraq). The people, all ages, races, men women, children, handicaps walk to visit the shrine or tomb of Imam Hussein. Their destination is pictured below. Here are the pictures I have found:



This is their destination, where Imam Hussein is buried
