  • as it is a little far from the heart of the city It is quiet and a cosy place to stay for a short time and to set prayers . the architecture of the place is amazing . It would be very strange place to see for the first time the tomb is surrounded by the other graves people of herat love this man and this place Khawje abdullah ansari was one of the greatest literators of the history, his books and speeches in persian and arabic are well-known .
