And our pavilion was a spiritual place availing its visitors with intellectuality mixed with spirituality and holiness, as it is associated to the name of the shrine of the standard-bearer of Imam al-Hussayn (peace be upon both of them). This participating is also an opportunity to get acquainted with the rest of the international publishing houses and institutions."

The pavilion was characterized that all its publications are exclusive products of the holy shrine, starting from the authoring to the printing and publishing, which distinguished the pavilion from the rest of the participating pavilions.
