With the direct field supervision of the Engineering Projects Department at the al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine and thanks to a donation of one of the donors, the works of an integrated sanitary complex under the name "the Oasis of Visitors" were launched recently, in order to provide a range of services and will help to remove some of the congestion that occurs during the Ziyarat of millions. The site, which is located at the entrance of Baghdad Gate from the side leading to the shrine of Aba al-Fadl al-Abbas (peace be upon him), lacks any sanitary complexes, thus after the availability of the appropriate space for its construction, work has begun and now has reached advanced stages of completion.
