Shi'ism: Part III

Here is footage I accidentally took with digital camera on the way to Guba, Azerbaijan. This shrine is located at the foot of Beshbarmak Mountain, which is considered a holy place local Muslims. The mountain is visible in the background. In the foreground to the left is the shrine and to the right is a fountain visitors use to wash themselves.

Our driver, Chingiz, a Sunni, told us he didn't believe the shrine was true Islam, just superstition. I wish I had more info about the shrine, but I can't find any.
