Among that information, a number of maps obtained by Karbala Center for Studies and Research and has been documented within the Karbala Civilizational Encyclopedia as "Documents of the Ottoman rule" in the department of modern and contemporary history.

 

One of the most prominent maps obtained by the center is the Map No. 38 of the Arabian Peninsula, showing the holy cities of Karbala and Najaf in 1897 AD.
