Chaxanay Machko ( Machko tea shop) is One of my favourite places to visit in Hawler, Kurdistan.
Brief history on this place:
The shop is built into Hawler’s Citadel which is one of the worlds most ancient places that are still inhabited. The tea shop is most popular for it’s architecture and cultural atmosphere which takes you back to the days of your grandparents and beyond. It truly captures the true culture of the Kurds and Kurdish life through the art work on the walls and lined rugs, and books.
It is a great place to visit with family and friends to enjoy a cup of tea! This Photo is taken by me on a spring night in ancient city of Kurdistan.
