The Hanging Gardens of Nineveh

by Gormack on May 1st, 2010

Yes Nineveh!

The references to Babylon are from Greek sources who were a bit fuzzy on Mesopotamia.

Assyrian reliefs, archives, and and archaeological evidence attest to lavish and extensive gardens at Nineveh, Nimrud and other Assyrian cities.

Equivalent evidence for such gardens at Babylon is wanting.

Sorry Nebuchadnezzar!
