The neighborhoods and gates of Mosul are designated by a variety of names. Before the early part of the twentieth century, when the city still retained its walls, quarters were known by gates, prominent buildings and, sometimes, religious or ethnic attribution. In the above map, a large number of shrines were located in the cemeteries outside of the orange areas in the northern and eastern parts of the walled city.
