The Sumerian ziggurat at
Ur, built about four thousand years ago, originally
had three levels.
The first level, most of which is still standing, has three huge stairways leading to a magnificent gate more than twelve metres above the ground. In the illustration, the surviving part of this ziggurat is coloured.
The upper levels, which were later destroyed, are ghosted in white.
