Al-Hindiya or Hindiya (Arabic: الهندية‎) is a city in Iraq on the Euphrates River. Nouri al Maliki went to school there in his younger days. Al-Hindiya is located in the Kerbala Governorate and is the seat of Al-Hindiya District. The city used to be known as Tuwairij (Arabic: طويريج‎), which gives name to the "Tuwairij run" (Arabic: ركضة طويريج‎) that takes place here every year as part of the Mourning of Muharram on the Day of Ashura.[1]
