The image is the Ishtar Gate from the ancient city of Babylon. The original gate was built by Nebuchadnezzar who reigned from 604-562 B.C. He destroyed the Jews and brought the kingdom of Judah to an end taking may of the Jews into exile. Daniel and Ezekiel would have passed through the gate. The ruins of Babylon cover 30 km lying on the east bank of the Euphrates River 90 km south of BaghdadThe gate seen here is a recreation that was created for the Pergamon Museum in Berlin
I've always thought the blue is such a wonderful color.

Neat picture. Did you take it? I'm involved in a Daniel Bible study now. Happy WW. I'm up at http://beckie-photoblog.blogspot.com/
These kinds of historic reminders just leave me breathless. What a shame you don't see this kind of architecture nowadays.
Isn't it a shame how landmarks and historical wonders are trampled by those who follow in the steps of others? Such a marvel would be wonderous to see. D :)
MARVELLOUS PIC!HAPPY WW!
WOW!It almost looks like leather!Pretty interesting and amazing!Great WW!
It's amazing to think the people of Israel where held captive in a place filled with such beauty.And on a more futuristic, apocolyptic note hard to believe the place where war is raging now will be built into the New Babylon before or after the rapture.(depending on your beliefs)This picture is a great reminder of the Commission of Christ."...Go and make disciples of all nations..."Blessings to all
