By the 7th century AD the Mesopotamian
region was incorporated into the Islamic world. In 1258 the Mongol's destroyed
irrigation works of one of the major city centers causing the decline of this region. In
1534 the Ottoman empire
seized control of the region and Iraq became a province of this
empire until the 20th century.
This shrine of the 7th and 9th Imams, or Muslim religious
leaders, is found in Baghdad.
