Hanging Gardens of Babylon (2/6)

List item

Shrouded in mystery and myth, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon remain the most elusive and awe-inspiring of all the world’s lost wonders. With no definitive location ever found, or any real valid evidence of the gardens even existing, the Gardens have plucked at the wonder of millions of peoples’ imaginations for centuries now. Presumably somewhere in the modern-day state of Iraq, it is reported that the masterfully engineered tiered gardens were built by the mighty Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar II for his wife, who reportedly missed the green hills of her homeland.
