What people are saying:

The ruins of Babylon are located on the right bank of the Euphrates River 90 kilometers south of Baghdad, the capital of Iraq. It was built in 2300 BC. It was once the Kingdom of Babylon (2000 BC to 1000 BC) and the Kingdom of New Babylon (7th century BC to 6th century BC) the capital. During the period of the New Babylonian Kingdom, Nebuchadnezzar II carried out a large-scale reconstruction of the ancient city, covering an area of more than 10,000 hectares. The most famous building is the 91-meter-high 7-story Tower of Babel and the Mark Duke Temple above. , And the Hanging Garden known as one of the Seven Wonders of the World in the Hellenistic era. The remains of these buildings have long since disappeared, and there are few monuments left. Only some foundations remain in the ruins. Some low walls, lion reliefs and gates have been restored on these foundations.
