Taji or Al-Taji (Arabic: التاجي) is a rural town around 30 kilometers (18 mi) north of the city of Baghdad, within Baghdad Governorate and Salah ad Din Governorate.
Taji has about 200,000 inhabitants. Many are Sunni Arab Muslims who work in the farming and agriculture sector.
Al-Taji airfield, in the volatile Sunni Triangle, was originally an Iraqi Republican Guard base during the Saddam era. It was once a center for the manufacture of chemical weapons. Taji was also the location of the largest tank maintenance facility in Iraq. Al-Taji airfield came under American control following the US invasion and was subsequently renamed Camp Cooke.
