In order to maintain the sheen and luster of the shrine's dome of Aba al-Fadl al-Abbas and to protect it from the erosion of its golden tiles, servants from the shrine's care department have started their periodic cleaning works.


The dome has an external circumference of 46.5m and a diameter of 15m, taking almost five days to clean as the works are divided into five sections using special material and equipment.

 It is noteworthy that the cleaning works were previously conducted by a trained staff from outside the holy shrine, however since the past two years and after gaining experience on proper dome cleaning, servants of the holy shrine themselves perform this great duty so the wonderful holy dome and minarets stay bright and shiny.
