Khorsabad Palace Fortress Built by Sargon II - Nineveh - Iraq

Saragon or Sharrukin II {"The True King"} usurped the throne from Shalmaneser V, and in spite of the endless foreign campaigns with which his reign (722-705 BC) was crowded he found time to build himself a magnificent paalace at Khorsabad, or Dur Sharrukin as it was originally called after its founder, of which the above is a bird's eye view from a restoration by Felix Thomas. The architecture was of a more solid order than in the palace of his son Sennacherib at Konyunjik; nevertheless, with its pilasters, battlements, and buttress-towers, it was by no means gross or ill-proportioned.
