Mazar-e-Sharif Masjid also known as Shrine of ALI(a.s), Afghanistan.

The Shrine of Hazrat Ali (A.S) , also known as the Blue Mosque, is a mosque in Mazar-i-Sharif, Afghanistan.

The story the founding of the shrine indicates that, shortly after the murder of Hazrat Ali (A.S) and the burial of his body at Najaf, near Baghdad, some of Hazrat Ali (A.S) \'s followers worried that his body would be desecrated by his enemies, and they placed his remains on a white female camel. His followers traveled with the camel for several weeks, until the camel ultimately fell to the ground exhausted. The body was then reburied where the camel fell.The body was said to be rediscovered there in the 12th century.
