Welcome to Baghdad
After the Abbasids rose to power, Caliph al-Mansur decided to move his capital east from Damascus to a site that was more central to his far-flung empire.
Did you know it took 100,000 architects workers and Craftspeople four years to build the new capital? Because of the shape, people called the capital complex the "round city."
One of the most glorious Muslim cities was the Abbasid capital of Baghdad.
One fact is that Baghdad is the largest city in Iraq and is situated on both sides of the Tigris River at a point 40 miles from the Euphrates River.
Also, the site for the city was chosen because of its strategic location in the middle of Mesopotamia.
