Ziggurat of Ur


The stock image shows the ancient Ziggurat of Ur, a massive stepped pyramid located in present-day Iraq.

The structure is made of mud bricks and rises to a height of approximately 70 feet. The image showcases the impressive scale and symmetry of the Ziggurat, with its tiers of steps leading up to a shrine or temple at the top. The Ziggurat of Ur was built around 2100 BCE by the Sumerian king Ur-Nammu, and it was dedicated to the moon god Nanna.

The structure is one of the best-preserved examples of a Ziggurat, which was a common type of religious structure in ancient Mesopotamia.
