This structure, which is one of the seven world wonders,
was said to be built for his mountain-born wife who was homesick,, and was
used as a cloister.
He also fortified the walls around his city, making it nearly impossible
for an invasion to occur.
Another magnificent achievment was the Gate of Ishtar, which only
one of the eight gates that were constructed in the city, but is by far
the most famous. This gate was made to worship the goddess Ishtar.
