WHS containing the remains of an archaeological structure commonly described as a "Ziggurat" - "massive structures built in the ancient Mesopotamian valley and western Iranian Plateau, having the form of a terraced step pyramid of successively receding stories or levels" (Wiki - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ziggurat)
|Ahwar of Southern Iraq||Each of the 3 ruined cities contains remains of Ziggurats. Tel Eridu: " Eighteen superimposed mudbrick temples at the site underlie the unfinished Ziggurat of Amar-Sin(c. 2047 – 2039 BC)." (Wiki) Uruk: "the Anu district consists of a single massive terrace, the Anu Ziggurat,dedicated to the Sumerian sky god, An" (Wiki). Ur: see link|
|Ashur||"The major features of the city which are presently visible on-site consist of architectural remains (some of them partly restored): the ziggurat and the great temple of the god Ashur, the double-temple of Anu and Adad (with the remains of two smaller ziggurats)" (AB eval)|
|Babylon||Etemenanki ziggurat (now in ruins)|
