This fair is one of the fairs set up in the recent years, taking into account the specificity of each Indian city, as this edition new titles have been added, to present 12000 copies of books and folders in both english and Urdu, and pictures of the holy shrine showing some of its features. As well as 2000 CD including other publications, all of which are characterized by effective, positive and balanced cultural approach.
All of these publications are authored, translated, designed and realized by the units and divisions of the Department of cultural and intellectual affairs at the holy shrine, and which were distributed free of charge for the visitors of the pavilion. The preparatory committee of the festival has created many points for its success as it is held for the first time in this town in this size, such as reserving a suitable space for it within the square of 'Askari Masjid, and choosing new method of exhibition. This pavilion has been a good opportunity to publicize the holy shrine, either through the publications or by answering the visitors' questions and queries. In addition to the dome's flag of Aba Al-Fadl Al-Abbas (peace be upon him) that was put and exhibited so that the visitors can seek its blessings and feel the spirituality.
