Renovations resume at Kifri Palace

GARMIYAN, July 29 — The Directorate of Antiquities in Garmiyan announced on Thursday that restoration has resumed at the historic Kifri Palace.

Kifri Palace, built by the British 100 years ago, was at risk of collapsing before the rehabilitation work began.

Mohammed Saleh, Deputy Director of Garmiyan’s Directorate of  Antiquities, told 964: “The renovation work at Kifri Palace was halted for about five months, as the Garmiyan administration was awaiting funding. Following a request from the Directorate of Antiquities, approximately 300 million Iraqi dinars was allocated for this phase, to whitewash the palace walls, repair the electrical wiring, and install doors and windows.”

“The regional government did not provide the support required to complete this phase, and the costs were borne by Qubad Talabani, the Deputy Prime Minister of the region.”
