Mazar-i-Sharif ("Tomb of The Chosen One") is home to the great
Blue Mosque, Tomb Of Hazrat Ali, cousin and son-in-law of Prophet
Mohammad (PBUH), the fourth caliph of Islam. The tomb was covered with earth to escape the
ravage of Genghis Khan in 1220 and remained lost until it was
uncovered during the rebuilding work in 1480s.
