As a result of the large and remarkable development of the departments of the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine which was the result of the expansion of its work and the breadth of its provided services, and because most of these departments operate inside the holy shrine, making the staff operate in a narrow space as a result of this expansion, and in order to make the holy shrine of Aba al-Fadl al-Abbas (peace be upon him) dedicated only to the Ziyarat and the performance of worship acts, the General Secretariat of the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine decided to establish a special complex comprising all its departments, divisions and units, to make it be in one place according to an advanced institutional work system.
