The palace was built for Sennacherib

The palace was built for Sennacherib, renovated and expanded by Esarhaddon (681-669 BC), and renovated again by Ashurbanipal (669-627). It was partly destroyed during the Sack of Nineveh in 612 BC.

Sadly, the barbarians have damaged the site (while they were busy destroying another).
