Description of Province

Babil is 100 km south of Baghdad.  Babil province derives its name from the ancient city of Babylon, which was part of three old civilizations in Iraq: the Sumerian civilization in the south, the Babylonian civilization in the middle, and the Assyrian and Accadian in the north.
Hilla, the capitol of this province, has many palm trees. Locals also call the area Al-Fayhaa, which means "a beautiful garden."
Most of the people in Babil are Shi'aa.
