Mar 01, 2008 - Tallil, Iraq - Curator DIEF MOHSSEIN NAIIF AL-GIZZY shows one of the royal tombs at the Sumerian ruins next to the Ziggurat of Ur. Al-Gizzy is the third generation in his family to care for the Ziggurat and the surrounding ruins. On the outskirts of Camp Adder, a logistics base in southern Iraq, is the Ziggurat of Ur, an ancient temple that is more than 4,000 years old. Built by the Sumerians in honor of their moon god, the rectangular temple towers over the flat Iraqi desert and can be seen for miles. Ur was the capital of the Sumerian and the birthplace of Abraham, the father of the prophets. Experts believe that the foundation of Abraham house is near the Ziggurat.
