Contest #105 Answer: Babylon, Iraq

From the ancient palace of Nebuchadnezzar and one of the original 7 wonders of the world, the Hanging Gardens,  to the lavish modern palace of Saddam Hussein, and the evidence of War, here we find Babylon.   This single image might be one of the most historic contest featured so far.

The prominent circular mound and Palace atop is the more modern castle of the fallen dictator.  The ruins to the east are the ruins of the palace of Nebuchadnezzar, including the reproduction of the Ishtar Gate.  Just to the south is Camp Babylon.
