Balkh is one of the 34 provinces of Afghanistan, located in the north of the country. It is divided into 15 districts. The city of Mazar-e-Sharif serves as the capital of the province. The name of Mazar-i-Sharif means "tomb of the saint", a reference to the tomb of Hazrat Ali ibn Abi Talib, cousin, son-in-law, and companion of the Islamic prophet Muhammad. The tomb is housed in the large, blue-tiled sanctuary and mosque in the center of the city known as the Shrine of Ali or the Blue Mosque.

The modern city of Mazar-e-Sharif is centered around the Shrine of Ali. Much restored, it is one of Afghanistan's most glorious monuments. The city is a center for the traditional buzkashi sport, and the Blue Mosque is the focus of northern Afghanistan's Nowruz celebration. Although most Muslims believe that the real grave of Ali is found within Imam Ali Mosque in Najaf, Iraq, others still come to Mazar-i-Sharif to pay respect.
