martyr's monument by mamamac martyr's monument by mamamac
the martyr's monument was built for those who lost their lives during the iran-iraq war. the u.s. military turned it back to the iraqi people right before we came home. it had been used as headquarters for the entire duration of our deployment.

the monument itself was very beautiful... with tunnels below the "teardrops" that had the names of all the martyrs carved into the marble walls.


(although i have been posting my iraq photos discouraging critiques, comments (other than what could technically be improved about the photo) are welcomed.)

You have a great pictures of Baghdad, it's where I live at the moment and unfortunately can't visit the places like before. I'm super happy to watch them here though :D

oh, my god.... um... look between the two "teardrops," and you'll see a tiny figure... that man is 6 feet tall... (the half-domes are 50 meters tall.) you can see more about it here.
