Where in the World Is the Tower of Babel?


The biblical story of the Tower of Babel is believed by many to be the record of a real historical event
that took place after the worldwide Flood, at a time when the earth’s population still lived together in
one place. The enduring archaeological question, therefore, is where the Tower of Babel was built. It is
widely considered that Shinar, where the Bible says the Babel event took place, was a territory in south
Mesopotamia; and that Babel was located at Babylon. However, an analysis of history, geography,
and geology, shows that Shinar cannot have been in the south, but rather was a territory in what is
northeastern Syria today; and that the remnants of the Tower must be located in the Upper Khabur
River triangle, not far from Tell Brak, which is the missing city of Akkad.
