To the east of Baghdad, called "Al-Rosafa" or "Assawb al-kabir" (because it is larger than the west side on the Tigris named "Assawb Assaghir"), in Bab Al-Sheik ", is the mausoleum of Sheikh Abdul- Qader Al-Jilani. It is one of the best examples of Iraq’s Islamic architecture, where the traditional domes of bricks and gypsum mix admirably with the new false domes and Italian marble.The tomb was in a small room of the school but part of the building was transformed into a mosque that has been expanding over the years. The biggest dome in Iraq built in 941 A.H/ 1534 A.D is white and has impressive dimensions and splendid architecture and decorations which can be seen from afar. It has been repainted from time to time. In 1970, it was extensively restored: the blue dome was renewed and other domes, decorated with Qashani, were built close to the white dome.
