Processional Way the of Ishtar Gate

Artist

The construction of the Processional Way and the Ishtar Gate took place in several phases, especially during the extension of the Royal Palace under the command of Nebukadnezar II between 605 until 568 b.c..

Artwork

The Ishtar Gate and the Processional Way leading up to it, belonged to one of the city gates of Babylon, which lays by the river Euphrat in today’s Iraq. They were created as shown here under the command of Nebukadnezar II (605-562 bc). The walls in Babylon, of the capital Babylonians, belonged to one of the seven wonders of the antique world – thus also the Ishtar Gate and its Processional Way.

Brief description

The Processional Way and Ishtar Gate are located in the Vorderasiatischen Museum that, on the other hand is located in the Pergamonmuseum, since the 30s of the 20. Century. The monumental buildings were excavated by Robert Koldeway, among others, who in 1897 travelled from Berlin to Babylon: „During my first visit in Babylon on 3 and 4th of June 1897 and my second visit from 29th until 30th December 1897, I came across many fragments of enameled brick reliefs, from which I took a few with me back to Berlin. The peculiar beauty and the intense importance of these bricks to the history of art (…) contributed to the decision to excavate the city of Babylon”, he remembers in his excavate journal.
