The capital of the ancient Babylonian empire was Babylon. Its area covered the Persian bay and the river Euphrates.
It is assumed that it had narrow and parallel streets. The city was divided into rectangle-shaped sections. The also knew sewage system. Some people believe they were the first who used this system. The city was surrounded by a tall double clay wall which was visible from far. On top of these walls, multi-storey buildings were built, connected with wide roads. These buildings and towers were partially made of bronze. The city had a huge society.
Ancient texts, cultural references and developed ruins prove that the Babylonian civilization may have been much more improved than mainstream scientists think. It also seems that they were very excelled at cosmology and astronomy. In addition, they did not even have ancestors. Who gave them this knowledge? Who were their teachers? The Babylonian civilization did not last longer than 238 years: it started with Hammurabi and ended with Samsu-dita. This period seems too short for such enormous developments.
The structure of the city hints that they had highly advanced architectural knowledge as well. They also mention godly beings, so-called Annunakis. Is it possible that Annunakis helped build their fascinating city?
One of the most significant architectural achievement was the high Marduk’s Tower. The tower was also a reference point for travellers in navigation as well. But what was its primary purpose? Was this tower built for giving respect to an extraterrestrial, interpreted as a God?
It is also theorised that the Tower of Babel was a technologically advanced ancient skyscraper.
The name Marduk is often associated with planet Niburu. According to some people, this is a clear reference that Marduk was an extraterrestrial who came from this planet and lived among people, sharing their knowledge and technology with them.
All in all the Babylonian empire seems to hide forgotten technological knowledge which is difficult to be explained even by science. But one day it may reveal its secrets.
