Cultural heritage sites are becoming collateral victims with the increasing frequency and intensity of disasters, both natural and human induced. There are many different risk factors that threaten our cultural heritage. These include direct and indirect factors, natural risks that could be catastrophic, sporadic or constant, neglect, decay and inappropriate development, wars and conflicts, bad restorations and reconstructions, looting and illicit excavations of sites, and urban planning policies and their consequences; all of which have a heavy impact on cultural heritage. Najaf city is one of the sacred cities of Iraq. The Najaf area is located 30 km south of the ancient city of Babylon and 400 km north of the ancient Biblical city of Ur. It is located on the edge of western plateau of Iraq, at southwest of Baghdad the capital city of Iraq, with 160 km far from the capital. The urban civilization triangle: the area bounded between Kufa, Al-Hira, and Najaf, called termed as urban civilization triangle, is one of the important spots of the era before Islam, has been deeply talked about by historians; because it is located within the area of world civilization accumulation that goes back thousands of years before been settled migrants. Through this book, we intend to share how digital pictures, dissemination and archiving can be the first step of intervention to save our history. We are introducing “Najaf Heritage at Risk” that highlights the accelerating risks threatening our cultural treasures. We also aim to get our readers to think about what we as a community can do to save heritage within our reach, before it is lost to us forever. Not knowing about Najaf heritage is of course a key risk, and remote areas or particular types of heritage can be neglected. Najaf Heritage at Risk is intended to raise awareness of heritage issues in Najaf city by identifying those heritage places, monuments, sites, and the important objects. Contents 1- The Holy City of Najaf (Iraq) 2- Cultural Heritage 3- Groups of Buildings 4- Monuments 5- Sites 6- Natural Heritage 7- Energy and Sustainability in Traditional Buildings
