The Hanging Gardens of Babylon were one of the seven wonders of the world and the name Babylon still brings to mind images of past glory.

Today there are ruins to visit, but you need some imagination or serious archealogical interest to really enjoy them. Still, it gives me a special feeling to walk around in Babylon.

The Ishtar Gate  was constructed in about 575 BC by order of King Nebuchadnezzar II on the north side of the city,and is Dedicated to the Assyrian goddess Ishtar.

Babylon means "The gate of God".
