The Wonders of Babylon
Babylon was a time of weird religious rituals, waged wars and lost civilisations. Babylon is known as the ‘Gate of God’, is considered one of the most important cities of the ancient world and is one among many small Mesopotamian kingdoms. Its actual location is marked by a broad area of ruins just east of the Euphrates River, 90 km south of Baghdad, Iraq.
One of the most popular Babylonian sites, The Tower of Babel, is taken from the classic story from the Old Testament of the Bible, where the people of the Earth were building a colossal staged temple-tower or multi-storeyed ziggurat - that would reach heaven. But did the Babylonians really believe they could reach their Gods? Or was the tower simply used as a place of worship?
Who were these amazing people who built one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Hanging Gardens and the incredible Tower of Babel?
It is a strange and fascinating story revealed by crumbling palace walls in the midst of wine, women and song. At the Wonders of Babylon presentation you will be sure to see and hear amazing prophecies and visit the houses and temples of the people of this ancient past.
