A new method of building has been adopted by the Department of Engineering Projects, which is using the sand of Lady Zaineb Shrine Project to make bricks and build some of the walls of the shrine.
Abbas El-Beyati, engineer and project director, said that this method is economical and eco-friendly.
He added that the soil of the holy city of Kerbela, especially what is surrounding Imam Hussein and El-Abbas Shrines, is the holiest soil the world over, because it is blessed.
