Citadel of Arbil, Iraq

As sunset approaches, the Citadel of Arbil is visible at the center of a series of concentric ring roads in Erbil, Iraq.  It's been continuously inhabited for at least 7000 years and possibly quite a bit longer.

Erbil is the capitol of the Kurdish autonomous region in Iraq.  It is relatively peaceful as compared to other parts of the country.  This has allowed for the development of a successful oil industry (that isn't sabotaged, as in other locales) and improving GDP figures.
