, also known as Baghdeda, Qaraqosh, Karakosh or Al-Hamdaniya, is an Assyrian city in northern Iraq Ninawa Governorate, located about 32 km (20 mi) southeast of the city of Mosul amid agricultural lands, close to the ruins of the ancient Assyrian cities Nimrud and Nineveh. It is connected to the main city of Mosul by two main roads. The first runs through the towns of Bartella and Karamles which connects to the city of Arbil as well. The second which was gravel until the 1990s when it was paved, is direct to Mosul. - Source: Wikipedia
