A silent color film sequence of the Kazmain Shrines, Baghdad, Iraq from 1956. This sequence is from amateur filmmaker John W. Rowe's travelogue of a car rally between Geneva, Switzerland and Bombay, India. This footage was previously mis-identified as being the the Al-Askari Mosque (also known as the Golden Mosque) in Samarra, Iraq. Thanks to viewers for leaving comments and correctly identifying the location.

The film clip is from the Human Studies Film Archives, Smithsonian Institution collection of historical moving images. http://siris-archives.si.edu/ipac20/i...
