The Abbasid Palace is the oldest building in the town of Baghdad . It is located on the banks of the Tigris River, in the capital of Iraq . The Abbasid Palace was built by Caliph Al Naser Ledinillad in the 12th century. The central courtyard of the palace is lined by arcades. Opposite the main entrance gate is a large house of worship. The main gate is an imposing building decorated with geometric reliefs with arabesques. Because of its resemblance to the Al-Mustansereyya School, it is presumed that the Abbasid Palace had originally been an Islamic religious school. The complex is partially reconstructed.
