No Jube it is not a Palace, it is a temple that was used for Religious purposes (though they do not call them Temples in Iaq and Iran)

Well I know we are not on the second page yet... but I've three correct answers so I think we're god .
First Place: P'Ter
Second: Hans
Third: Dernok

The answer was the Ziggurat of Ur located near Tallil Air Force Base in Southern Iraq just outside of the city of Nasiriyah. I was stationed there from Aug 2006 to Nov 2009. It is also known to be the home and birthplace of the biblical Abraham.

Here is my unit:
82nd Airborne... i'm on the steps somewhere ... thanks for letting me share!
