Don't miss the opportunity of visiting the ancient city of Ur that has a magnificent three-level ziggurat (temple) built about four thousand years ago.
The whole structure is over 17 m high.
It used to be a sacred area.
To the east of the temple there is a huge pit. It was a vast cemetery dating back to 4,500 years ago. It contained hundreds of graves that were excavated and yielded lots of rare objects found in many museums now.

Directions: About 200 km to the south of Baghdad

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
