THE TOMB OF EZRA (traditional) at Al ʿUzair, Iraq, is featured in the Babylon & Beyond Blog at the LA Times. There are pictures, including of a couple of Hebrew inscriptions.

For notes on some possible Ezra traditions in Islam, see my essay on the Apocalypse of Sedrach here, points 2-3 near the end.
