Like the sky in a dream sometime
If it’s sunny I’ll give you a golden bell

Hanging Gardens of Babylon

Hanging Gardens of Babylon

Hanging Gardens of Babylon - One of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World said to have been built in the ancient city of Babylon although their location has not been definitively established. Even the period of their construction itself is not so clear: were they built under the Neo-Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar II for his wife Amytis, or under the legendary queen Semiramis, said to have ruled Babylon in the 9th century BCE? Or do they refer to the Assyrian King Sennacherib’s gardens in Nineveh? No evidence has been gathered yet.
