    Imam Ali Mosque (Shrine of Hazrat Ali) is always surrounded with thousands of pigeons.
    It is said, that this place is so holly, that every pigeon get purely white within 40 days.
    The shrine is blue like sky with a lot of beautiful mosaics, yellow or dark blue. It is not allowed to entry for non-muslims, but i think it is so gorgeous, that it is enough to see it from outside.

    The shrine with women in burqas

    It can't be missed -- this stunning blue tiled mausoleum in the middle of Mazar is probably one of the most beautiful Islamic buildings in the world.
    You can walk around the grounds once you've left your shoes at the gate. I was told not to enter the very centre of the building but was able to go inside. The outside is much nicer --you don't miss anything by not going inside.
