Sixth construction of the Holy Shrine of Imam Hussain


Fire broke out in the holy shrine during the boweihian control burning the dome and courtyard. Hassan B. Mufaddal renovated the building in 412 A.H. He however, built a dome on the shrine renovating what had the fire destroyed. He , also, ordered to surround the shrine with a high wall which, later, was mentioned by Ibn Idrees in his book (al- Ser’air) in 588 A.H. Ibn Sehlan then renovated the outer wall in 414 A.H.

In 620 A.H., the Abbasid caliph Al-Nasir Muayd Al-Kindi renewed the shrine and installed a wooden coffin above the holy grave.
