The Al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine gave great interest to its main entrances, principally the door of Qiblah, which is singled by his special design that differs from the other nine doors, because of its importance in the minds of visitors of the shrine of Aba Al-Fadl Al-Abbas (peace be upon him) as well as being one of the most important interfaces for the horizontal expansion project of the Al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine.
The Head of the Department of Engineering Projects in Al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine, the Engineer Dea' Majeed As-Sa'egh informed Al-Kafeel Network the following: "The expansion project of the doors of the Al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine is one of the positive additions that has been done on the project to expand the Al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine, where the idea is to combine these doors with the old ones in order to form an integrated architectural design, and thankfully we came out with positive results, and part of the success of this project is reached by the completion of Al-Qibla entrance of Aba Al-Fadl Al-Abbas (peace be upon him). "
He also mentioned: "The width and the hight of Al-Qiblah entrance are of 11 meters, which makes it twice bigger than the old one, covered with the best materials according to the best standards, and respecting the old structure"
In fact the Department of Engineering Projects in Al-Abbas's (P) holy shrine had carried out and supervised - since it was founded after the fall of the former regime and until now - dozens of large projects such as this project , as well as hundreds of small and medium projects within the holy sanctuary and beyond. The realization of most of these projects are made by Iraqi employees working in the department and in local companies from outside the holy shrine, or rarely with companies with foreign labour.
