According to legend, the hanging garden of Babylon is a special gift of the king Nabuchadnezzar (605-562 BC) of the Chaldean dynasty of Babylon gave the queen of Princess Medes love. And now it has no trace. Is the garden hanging there?

I had a booklet of the  wonders of the world in which i think i remember it was said that there were some remains that some think may have been the hanging gardens, and that "hanging" might mean slightly different to what some think, though i don't have the booklet anymore to check. One book i have here says Koldewey unearthed a garden and a tower, and a picture caption says "arches which according to Koldewey probably held up the hanging gardens". Another book says "at the north eastern corner of the palace was a structure with thick brick walls and long narrow vaulted chambers.... the walls suggest this was a high building. The excavator proposed to identify it with the hanging gardens. .... the vaulted rooms could have supported terraces of brickwork for these gardens." Media was a more mountainous country so it is possible. ("Garden" is also used for female like in Song of Solomon.) Another legend as them built by Semiramis 5 generations earlier. The gardens might possibly have been on the ziggurat or tower of Babel/Babylon? In Peru the Akapana pyramid in Tiahuanaco/Tiwanaku also had gardens and water fed to various parts. Ancient middle east nations had sacred groves (as did Britons/Celts too). Garden of Fin in Persian. Palace garden of Ahasuerus in 'Esther' in bible. Compare modern botanic gardens and zoos. Some say Babylon is sight of garden of Eden, or of the land of Nod to east of Eden at Jerusalem. Could also check what wikipedia article on it says.

NZ's mandatory fluoridation is not fair because it only forces it on the disadvantaged/some and not on the advantaged/everyone.
