“Babylon is one of the most important archaeological sites in the world. One of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and famous for its Hanging Gardens, Babylon is also home to Ishtar Gate and the Lion of Babylon, a national icon. It’s a site in Iraq that we, at the World Monuments Fund, have been conserving for more than a decade. And now, you can explore it, too.
Today, World Monuments Fund has joined forces with Google Arts & Culture to bring you Preserving Iraq’s Heritage, an online exhibit showcasing the unique stories of Iraq’s endangered heritage sites and the extraordinary efforts to preserve them. “
