    1. um, no. 1st, it was the Tower of Babel, not the Tower of Babylon.

      also, it was in what is now Iraq, about 50 miles south of Baghdad.

    7. Babel is the Hebrew word for Babylon.

      Babylon is about 50-60 miles south of Baghdad.

      You’re probably thinking of the ziggurat of Ur, which is the most complete ruins of a ziggurat extant, but there’s no historical evidence that that inspired the tower of bable, and there certainly were ziggurats in Babylon before the Persian invasion.
