Review of Ziggurat of UR

Ziggurat of UR
Reviewed 28 January 2014

beautiful, surreal place on the desert plains. can climb to the top of the ziggurat, which was largely refurbished by Saddam Hussein. awesome views from the top. pre-historic settlement beside the tall ziggurat. so much history here. had a chance to visit here as a journalist. hope someday the place is safe enough and accessible for all. lots of damage and looting.
