On the day of Ashura, traditionally one of the most crowded mourning ceremonies is held in the Nardaran shrine.
About 10 thousand people - locals, visitors from Baku and other regions of the country took part in ceremonies.
Imam Hussein (the grandson of Prophet Muhammad) and his companions were martyred on Ashura, the 10th day of Muharram (Lunar month), which falls on 24th October 2015 this year. Muharram ceremonies symbolize the eternal and unwavering stance of truth against falsehood and humanity’s struggle against tyranny, the cause for which Imam Hussein was martyred.
