Excerpted from the website:
- Alqush traces its history back into the great Chaldean Assyrian empire and perhaps even further back into history. Indeed, the earliest mention of Alqush appears in Sinhareeb’s era 750 B.C. as evidenced by the mural inside Sinharib’s palace that was discovered in Tel Qwenjeq (Qwenjeq Hill) in Mosul. Behind this mural, the phrase "This rock was brought from Alqush’###ountain" is carved; furthermore, a number of sites within Alqush still carry pure Assyrian names, for example, Sainna Neighborhood(which means the Moon Neighborhood) and Bee Siinnat which is a plain area south of Alqush. Within approximately three kilometers, to the west of Alqush, lies the well known ruin of Shayro Meliktha which is marked in the Iraqi ruins Map as an Chaldean Assyrian temple carrying a carving of Sinharib's picture aiming an arrow from his bow.
