Babylonian Temples and Monumental Architecture online (BTMAo) is part of the four-year, LMU-Munich-based project Living Among Ruins: The Experience of Urban Abandonment in Babylonia, which is funded by the Gerda Henkel Stiftung as part of the program "Lost Cities. Wahrnehmung von und Leben mit verlassenen Städten in den Kulturen der Welt," coordinated by Prof. Dr. Martin Zimmermann (Historisches Seminar; LMU Munich) and Prof. Dr. Andreas Beyer (University of Basel). BTMAo is funded from September 2019 to October 2023. Given that Wikipedia is currently not a reliable source for this subject area, this site aims to make information about the most important Babylonian temples, palaces, and city walls of the 1st millennium BC freely and easily accessible to students, non-specialist scholars, and interested members of the general public. Its general structure is modelled on the Oracc-based, high-impact website Ancient Mesopotamian Gods and Goddesses, to which it serves as a companion. The first phase of website development (September 2019–August 2022) has generally focused on adding information about Babylonian temples and monumental architecture found in royal inscriptions of the Neo-Babylonian Empire (625–539 BC), with some supplementary information from inscriptions of rulers of Babylonia from the Second Dynasty of Isin to the end of Assyrian domination (1157–612 BC).
