The Remains of an Ancient 60-Meter Tall Temple

Though it looks like any old natural geological structure standing high above the ground, much like the rock formations in the Grand Canyon or other places, it is actually a 3,400-year-old ziggurat built during the time of King Kurigalzu of the Kassite Dynasty.

The structure was originally a ziggurat standing some 60 meters tall with a foundation about 70 meters square. What remains today is the core; the rest was destroyed along with the city of Dur-Kurigalzu that was invaded by the Elamites in the 12th century BC.
