The Hanging Gardens Of Babylon

Located in Iraq

One of the seven wonders of the ancient world

The beautiful Hanging Gardens of Babylon have many amazing hand colored engravements and interesting ancient texts in on the walls. Some people suggest that the hanging gardens are legendary because of the lack of evidence.

The ancient texts

In ancient writings the Hanging Gardens of Babylon were first described by Berossus, a Babylonian priest of Marduk who wrote around 290 BC, although his books are known only from quotations by later authors. There are five principal writers (including Berossus) whose descriptions of Babylon are extant in some form today. These writers concern themselves with the size of the Hanging Gardens, why and how they were built, and how the gardens were irrigated.
