"Mousl - AL-Hadba" Mosul by OMR
Mosul Travel Guide: 4 reviews and 11 photos
City in Iraq with approximately 570,000 inhabitants, situated in the northwestern part of the country, on the west bank of Tigris, and close to the ruined Assyrian city of Nineveh.
The economical base of the city is production of cereals and livestock, oil production, oil refineries, cement factories, cotton products, textile mills, and tanneries. Even though muslin is no longer produced here, Mosul is the city that named the product.
The population of Mosul is principally Kurdish, but with a large minority of Arab-speaking Christian Assyrians, and a smaller minority of Turkomans.
Mosul has many ancient buildings, of which the Great Mosque, the Red Mosque, and the Mosque of Nabi Jarjis are the most famous. The town centre is dominated by a maze of streets and attractive 19th century houses.
