As mentioned in Bible about Babylon, the HISTORY behind this town is great. The remnants of 2000 years old hanging garden & Palace are still be seen. The Euphrates and Tigris rivers are passing thru nearby areas in plain land and Highway is passing through the middle of these rivers almost major part of Iraq. I used to pass through this place from Iskandriya, Karbala, Babylon to Wheat Flour Factory to collect monthly Wheat Flour quota for employees of Project, since the permit was in my name being Project Administrator. Though Iraq government through economic turmoil, not maintained these areas, but visitor who knows & want to learn history, it is very place for study tour too. The gate at Highway, Babylon Lion etc are worthseeing.
