Sarchinar is a beautiful resort town near Sulaymaniy Iraqi-occupied Kurdistan. It has a rich resource of drinking water which is piped out to supply some of the city's drinking water demands. It also has one of the biggest Cement factory in the middle east which produces thousands of  tons of  the best quality cement every day.

In addition to that wealth, it provides a natural setting resort for visitors and picnickers. Moreover, it has a small Zoo and an amusement park for children.

 This is the eastern part of the city of almost one million people. Kurd have never had any freedom under continous occupations by past rulers and current Iraqi regime.

Kurdish people are free and want to be independent without being under any ruler. There are more than five million Kurds in north Iraq , "South Kurdistan", which has been occupied by Iraq since its creation after World War One by Britain and France.
