The gardens were said to have looked like a large green mountain constructed of mud bricks.The thickness of its wall is thirty-two feet; the height of the towers is fifty cubits; that of the towers is sixty cubits, and the passage on top of the wall is such that four-horse chariots can easily pass one another.
