Ziggurats

Ziggurats were built when the first civilizations were formed in the world, people understood that they can live together in the cities and build great things.

The world's largest ziggurat and the only one which has been inscribed on UNESCO World Heritage List: Tchogha Zanbil

A model of the ziggurat:
