Iranian artists and artisans have completed the construction of the new zarih (outer sarcophagus enclosure) of the holy shrine of Imam Hussein (AS).

It was unveiled during a ceremony at the Masumieh Seminary in Qom.

The construction of the zarih has been arranged by Iran's Center for Reconstruction of Holy Shrines.

After the new zarih was on show at the seminary, it will later be transferred to Iraq to replace the old one in Karbala.

A large group of Iranian artists in the city of Qom were hired to build the zarih, which was made of gold, silver, copper and teakwood.

The center spent about 140 billion rials (about $11.5 million) to make the zarih.

About 1250 kilograms of gold, about 1800 kilograms of silver and about 600 kilograms of copper have been used in construction of the zarih.

A large quantity of the gold has been donated by the Iranian people.

The latest techniques have been used in lighting in this structure. In addition, crystals with the ability to change light and color have been installed inside the zarih.
