Tell Basmosian, Tell Al-Daim, and Tell Asfour are among the locations in which the (Hurrians) people settled there and they had an architectural and economic imprint in it in the middle of the second millennium B.C.
And because of the closeness of this location to the kingdom of (Arabkha) as well as the city of (Nuzi) which is affiliated with it and from the architectural remains that it was found in these locations, as it was revealed after studying it by specialists in the social, economic, religious and political life of these peoples.
And for the lack of information about these people, we decided to study their architecture by selecting four samples that the study tackled، including the Basmosian Temples and architectural remains of resident houses in Al-Daim Tell and Defensive wall as well as some houses in Asfour Tell.
