The name of Babylon mostly is linked with a Bible story about the tower of Babel which was built by people led by Adam in order "to reach unto heaven" in the hope of being equal to God.
The Greeks and, later, the Romans wrote about the prosperity of Babylonia and joyful Babylonians. A famous ancient traveler, Herodot, had visited the city of Babylon. His written works describe architectural buildings which became famous as 7 Wonders of the Earth. One of the-se was labelled as the hanging gardens of Babylon-it was a wonderful combination of architecture and flora. Nobody can confirm or deny it they were real buildings or just the imagination of a tired traveller, but the remained sculptural heritage and myths of the ancient Babylonia are still fascinating and exciting the imagination of people.
