Mesopotamia Religious structures
A ziggurat was a temple than ancient Mesopotamians built to worship the Gods and Godesses. Ziggurats were built by the Sumerians, Babylonians and Assyrians of ancient Mesopotamia. Built with sun-baked bricks, and shaped a lot like a pyrimid. The Mesopotamian ziggurats were not places for public worship or ceremonies. they were believed to be dwelling places for the gods. Each city had its own patron god and ziggurat. Only priests were permitted inside the ziggurat, because it was their job to talk to the Gods and Godesses. The Mesopotamians belived that the Gods lived inside the temple.
