Under the Chaldeans, Babylon rose again to even greater splendor. It became the New Babylonian Empire. King Nebuchadnezzar II rebuilt the city of

Babylon, putting up huge walls for protection. Neb II also built a royal palace that was 350 feet tall. On top of the palace hung huge gardens. The Hanging Gardens of Babylon became one of the ancient wonders of the world. King Nebuchadnezzar II

Advances in Learning Under the rule of the Chaldeans, the New Babylonian Empire (NBE) became a center for learning and science. Chaldean astronomers charted the paths of stars and measured the length of a year. In 539 BC, the NBE was conquered by the

Persians but the capital city of Babylon was spared.
