Girr (Tel) Keppe, one of the largest Kurdish-Chaldean Catholic towns in Mesopotamia, is located in the Ninawa Governorate in less than 8 miles North East of Mosul (Nineveh) in Southern Kurdistan.
Girr Keppe is now considered a suburb of Mosul. Currently only around 55,000 Kurdish christians (Chaldeans) live in it, the majority of the inhabitants being Kurds and Syrians, while an estimated 100,000 Chaldeans who trace their origins to Girr Keppe now live in Baghdad-Iraq, San Diego, California, and Detroit, Michigan. In a publication written 1836 by Claudius James Rich, the town was described as being "wholly inhabited by Kurdish Chaldeans."
The name "Girr Keppe", is of Kurdish origin and is made of two words; "Girr" which means "hill" and "Keppe" which means "stones" i.e. Hill of Stones. This is probably a reference to its location over a ruined suburb of Nineveh. The first mention of the name is at the end of the fifth century BC. (after the fall of Nineveh to the Chaldean-Medes alliance in 612 BC), by Ksenfonenus, the Commander of the Greek army's campaign in northern Mesopotamia in 401 BC.
