Zeynel Bey Tomb and the kids
Have you ever seen how the Tigris turns to red and my purple silhouette falls on the river at sunsets? Have you ever witnessed how the people from almost all nations and religions worked on me like an embroidery article for thousands of years? In fact, I’m the cradle of civilization.
Cherishing the sight
The Byzantine King has ordered 'construct a castle!'. They made their castle on massive rocks along Tigris River. They made tunnels to the banks of the river from inside the castle, not to become without water in the case the city is blocked by the enemies. They took mules to the river through these tunnels. My city has never been without water at all.
