Part of reconstructed temple dedicated to the Sumerian Goddess Inanna (Ishtar). The image is an oblique view of the baked brick façade with deity figures within niches. Although dedicated to a Sumerian (30th c. BCE) Goddess- inscription evidence indicates the temple dates back to the Kassite ruler Kara-indash and the late 15th c BCE.
