Qaryat al-Lak (formerly called Tulul al-Lak) is a small village in northern Iraq that is located between the Assyrian cities Nimrud and Mosul. The modern village is built on top of the ruin mound. The ancient name of the settlement is not known.

In the mid-nineteenth century, Austen Henry Layard discovered inscribed bricks "bearing the name of the Kouyunjik-king" at Tulul al-Lak. The "Kouyunjik-king" is probably to be identified with the 7th-century B.C. Assyrian king Sennacherib.
