The Mashki Gate Restoration, Mosul

The project will restore this exceptional architectural example and transform it into an educational center dedicated to the history of Nineveh.

Unlike the other monuments of the Nineveh site that were explored by foreign teams, the Mashki Gate was excavated and rebuilt by Iraqi archaeologists and conservators. It was destroyed in 2016 by Daesh. The project will restore this exceptional architectural example and transform it into an educational center dedicated to the history of Nineveh.
