     Ground penetrating radar (GPR) technology is used to determine the extent to which this technique can detect with a high-frequency range from 10 MHz to 1000 MHz into the ground by a transmitting antenna and A graveyard was found beneath the depth of the three meters under Surface of the earth in the shrine of the Prophet Houd and Saleh in Al-Najaf Governorate surveyed by through 4 tracks. Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) is a device that transmits short pulses of electromagnetic energy with pulse duration about 1 ns to 20 ns. applying the filter Time- Zero to the same profile at a depth (3m) , Two types of antennas were used in this study, with two different frequencies antennas (250, 500 )MHz Three tracks (23,25,26) were surveyed using an antenna (250 MHz) and one (96) track using an antenna (500MHz) . The data were collected and extracted from the device memory and the radar segments were then treated using the special program of processing RadExplorer software which contains many filters that are used to process the received signal.
