Under the supervision and design of the Engineering Projects Department at the al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine, and to complete the series of works and projects witnessed in the shrine of Aba Al-Fadl Al-Abbas (peace be upon him), the Engineering Maintenance Department at the Holy Shrine initiated the installation of an external fence with a movable door to the entrance of the Qibla Gate of the Holy Sanctuary, to replace the fence It was previously put, which was temporary, and also because it is prone to movement or falls, especially in the days of Ziyarat of millions.
About this work, the head of the Engineering Maintenance Department at the al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine, Engineer Samir Abbas Ali, spoke to the Al-Kafeel Network, saying: “The work that is carried out in the holy sanctuary of the shrine of Aba Al-Fadl Al-Abbas (peace be upon him) and its surroundings, are carried out within a timetable that has been put in place to be implemented one by one. And what is currently being done is only one of them, so the entrance to the Qibla Gate is considered one of the most important entrances to the holy sanctuary, and this is what led us under the guidance of the General Secretariat of the al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine, to pay special attention to it commensurate with the importance and significance of this gate".
He added: "The fence and its moving door are designed by the Engineering Projects Department at the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine, and it was manufactured with beautiful technical and engineering specifications that harmonize with the existing patterns and decorations in the qibla gate and the holy sanctuary, to create a case of architectural symmetry under the direct implementation of our department's staff. We have started the first steps to erect it after taking the necessary measurements, dimensions, loads, and other technical matters.
Noting: "It has been taken into account in the manufacture of the fence, which is 36 meters long, including its gate of 12 meters length and two meters height, the aesthetic and durability specifications and bearing all pressures resulting from the movement of visitors. The fence will be installed in a tight and firm way at an estimated distance of 4 meters from the entrance to the main qibla gate. "
He explained: "The inscriptions and motifs on the sections of the fence are inspired by the networks, decorations and inscriptions of the grid of the holy tomb, to create a state of artistic and urban symmetry in the Sanctuary."
