Old Baghdad

I created this thread to post the pictures of the old and historical parts of Baghdad.

Please do not post old pictures of Baghdad if you want to do so open a new thread. Note that all the pictures are relatively new (post war) accept few are old (I will point which ones are the old).

I will try not to put more than 10 pictures per post (I hope you guys do the same if you like to post pictures) so the thread won't be ruined.


Al-Khulafaa mosque and Al-Ghazel pets market










The Latin Church (The Roman Catholic Church)

(old pic)






Aerial picture of Al-Joumhouria street (you can see Al-Khulafaa mosque and just across the street The Latin Church)

Great thread, Baghdad has some really beautiful structures!!
I hope the government is not planning on demolishing the old court i find it fascinating as a touristic site.
