Project of the Restoration and Maintenance of the Holy Dome.
Because of the old age of the architecture of the shrine of Aba al-Fadl al-Abbas (peace be upon him) and the effects of the years on the building, as there is erosion of building materials, and the loss of linking material due to moisture and weather factors, and the occurrence of movement in construction and foundations due to the decline and rise of the water table, all of which lead to the weakness of the construction and the appearance of cracks on all sides, especially that the construction is of a large mass and high elevations. Due to the lack of periodic maintenance of these installations and buildings, these factors increase their effects on the construction and appear sometimes in dangerous manner on the construction. Therefore the management of the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine directed its instructions to the engineering and technical maintenance departments and the engineering projects department of the necessity of periodic follow-up of the buildings of the holy shrine. So, a special committee was formed to submit the reports and directives on this matter.
