Ancient Babylon was the greatest city of the ancient world. Revered by ancient and modern scholars alike - this city was the birth place of one of the world's first law codes, home to ancient wonders such as the Hanging Gardens, the Ishtar Gate, and possibly even the fabled Tower of Babel. Every civilization of the region fought to possess the city and in the end it fell as a result.
