Ziggurats were massive, multi-storied pyramid temples built in ancient Mesopotamian towns in western Iranian plateau. The word ‘Ziggurat’ means ‘to build on a raised area’. The Ziggurats were the part of the huge temple complex that included several other buildings as well. The ‘Ziggurats’ were considered as the ‘Abode of the Gods’ & were built in the form of terraced step pyramid with successively retreating floors or levels.
