Shar Garden Square

16 April of 2014 by

Shar Garden Square is a recently constructed esplanade just below the citadel complete with fountains, brick arcades and a clock tower modeled on London’s Big Ben.

A favorite haunt of Erbilites with its narguille cafes and tea shops, the square attracts locals of all ages and is alive with tourists from the southern provinces during the summer months.

Part of Erbil’s urban redevelopment plan, the square offers a great view of the citadel and its many fountains cool down the arid air, offering a refreshing respite from the bustling bazaar.

There are even resident photographers on hand if you fancy a celluloid souvenir.
