Makes you wonder if there was cities around these temples or if they were in the middle of nowhere like they are today?

It used to be in the middle of a large city - Ur and used to be a major trade center on a waterway that has changed course. The coast also was different 4000 years ago. I’ve actually been on this temple. It’s pretty amazing. invidious.fdn.fr/watch?v=d2lJUOv0…
