Only small portions of the Central Palace have survived since it was largely dismantled in antiquity and, therefore, the precise area covered by this royal residence and its relationship to other buildings constructed within the Kalhu citadel remain unknown/uncertain. At least two of Tiglath-pileser III's inscriptions state that his newly-constructed royal residence stretched as far as the Tigris River, a situation now complicated by the fact that Iraqi excavations under the direction of Muzahim Mahmud Hussein discovered a palace constructed by Adad-nārārī III immediately south of the Northwest Palace. It is uncertain if Tiglath-pileser III's palace incorporated the earlier royal residence of Adad-nārārī III into its plan or if it merely abutted it.
