On one of the two most prominent mounds of Nineveh‘s ruins, rose the Mosque of the prophet Jonah, the son of Amittai. When built, the mosque replaced an Assyrian Church believed to be the burial place of Jonah and called Jonah’s Tomb. Also, Assyrian King Esarhaddon (681–669 BC) previously built a palace on the site.
