Antiquities and museums restored the archaeological site of Tal Baidar in Hasaka, dating back to the third millennium BC

The Department of Antiquities and Museums in Al-Hasakah Governorate has launched various restoration projects for the archaeological site of Tal Baydar, located in the north of the governorate, on the road connecting the cities of Al-Hasakahand Darbasiyah.

The head of the department, Khaled Ahmo, said in a statement to the SANA reporter that the restoration work includes the architectural block consisting of four temples and a palace dating back to the middle of the third millennium BC, and the treatment of cavities and cracks within the modern walls encased in the archaeological blocks in addition to cleaning and rehabilitation of the site.

 

Hamo noted the importance of carrying out restoration operations for the archaeological site of Tal Baidar, as it is one of the best preserved sites dating back to the third millennium BC to preserve it from weather factors.

The archaeological site of Tal Baidar is located 35 km north of the city of Hasakah and is of a crescent shape that passed through a number of phases (the Assyrian, Intermediate, Mitanni and Hellenistic periods), but the most important and prosperous of them were in the middle of the third millennium BC, when they formed a kingdom called Nabada, which is located inside a fortified city in Surin.

It is noteworthy that Al-Hasakah Governorate is considered one of the richest archaeological areas in Syria and contains nearly 800 archaeological sites registered with the Department of Antiquities and Museums there, and 146 unregistered sites.
