This a great historical citidal and recently has been renovated. From Chegizhan to Hulagu and many other emperors have lied siege on this citidal. Perhaps the latest dictators to conquer was Saddam Husein but citidal continues to survive as a Kurdish city.

The citadel of Erbil is a nice place to visit, it tells about the ancient history of this place. Unfortunately, some parts are closed for the public. The entrance is free

If you visit to first time Erbil not go to Erbil Citadel, that mean you don't visit Erbil. Very nice place.
