Thanks for the pictures! Very interesting pictures - an eye opener which shows us a place which has sadly been in the headlines for way too many years!

I have some questions, what is the Palace? When is AQlRahman Mosque going to be finished?

And on your first pics I see some streets which looks quite old, how big is the Old Baghdad?
Baghdad is one of the "Big Three" with Cairo and Damascus in regards of its meaningfulness during the Islamic Empire but I donīt know how much is left from those days....

You are welcome.

The palace is one of Saddam's many old palaces. The Rahman Mosque will never be finished I guess. It is in this state since December 2001.

The old Baghdad is about 15kmē big. There is some left not much though

Cool thread. Thanks for this!

The streets look empty of people (accept for the market pictured above). Is that due to the extreme heat?

Thank you buddy.

Yeah, you should see the streets after 7pm, too crowed to walk normally

That is what I thought - it is too hot during the day so people stay inside and then come out in the evening.

Hope you can get some pictures of the city at that time. Should look very different and much more lively.

Again, thanks for this window unto a largely unseen place.

The pics above are taken just after most people break fasting, that's why the streets are empty.
