Building Overview Game Strategies History

The Hanging Gardens wonder is based on the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, which is one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The ancient city of Babylon, where it was said to have existed, is thought to be near the present-day Hillah, Babil province, in Iraq.

The Gardens are believed to have been built under the rule of Nebuchadnezzar II (604-562 BC). Despite the ascending series of tiered gardens being described as a remarkable feat of engineering, there are doubts as to whether the Hanging Gardens existed in reality at all, as no physical evidence has been found of their existence so far. Archaeologists still continue to attempt to piece together its exact location and design.
