Castles and Palaces in Iraq

Although not many ancient fortifications or palaces survive to this date, Iraq has some fascinating castles and palaces today.

In Samarra, about 120 km from Baghdad, the Abbasid Palace is located, which is one of the finest piece of Islamic palace alive.

The Turkmen Citadel of Kirkuk is also an impressive fortification. Unfortunately, due to the current conflict, Iraqi fortifications are not easy to visit and getting updated data about their condition is hard.
