This is part of the processional way (or street) at the ancient city of Babylon, in modern-day Iraq. The way and its tiles are original but the flanking buildings are modern ones (which were built in the 1980s CE by Saddam Hussein, former president of Iraq). Neo-Babylonian period, reign of Nebuchadnezzar II, 6th century BCE.
