Contest #213 answer: Bab al-Aziziyah, Tripoli, Libya

This is the compound of the former Libyan leader Mu’ammar Muhammad Abdassalam Abu Minyar al-Qaddhafi (thanks, Axl 🙂 ), called Bab al-Aziziyah.

It was originally built by the first and only king of Libya, King Idris and the main target of the bombing of Libya in 1986 by the USA.

On August 23 2011 it was seized by the Libyan rebels, but the Qaddhafi family already had left the place.
