Historians and archaeologists from the University of Munich have visited the holy shrine of Imam Ali, peace be upon him.
The archaeologists have commended the attendance of academic students along with the students of Hawza (religious seminary). This drags the attention to the fact that the holy shrine is not only a place for worship and spiritually but also a place for learning and seeking knowledge.
Prof. Adelheid Otto said, “I visited most of the archaeological sites in Iraq but it is my first visit to the Holy Shrine of Imam Ali, peace be upon him. For the first time, I see a place full of spiritually in every sense. You feel that you are near to the sky searching for spiritual white image.”
Prof. Adelheid Otto also expressed her thanks and gratitude to the warm hospitality and reception of the staffs of the holy shrine.
