Old City of Mosul
Old City of Mosul is part of the Tentative list of Iraq in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.
The Old City of Mosul, which developed on the opposite side of the Tigris River from ancient Nineveh, had its heydays during the Zangid Dynasty of the 12th and 13th centuries. The Great (Nuriddin) Mosque from 1172 with its marble fountain was one of its main monuments, until it was destroyed in 2017. The city’s buildings were known for their decorative carvings, in a mix of Egypt's Fatimid and local Christian Nestorian architectural traditions. The city has preserved its Ottoman urban lay-out with narrow alleyways and markets.
