MESOPOTAMIAN MYTHOLOGY

The Ancient Gods of Sumer and Babylon...

DILMUN

Mesopotamian legendary place

Also known as TILMUN

The Sumerian Paradise where it is always Sumertime.

Mentioned on an ancient clay tablet, DILMUN is probably the first example of Paradise ever recorded. Reports indicate that there were minor plumbing problems to start with, leaving the place dry, withered and not entirely happy. But ENKI came to the rescue with a huge bucket of water and now everything is lush and green.

It’s a lovely place, full of light and joy — and anything even remotely nasty is banned. Unfortunately for us, that also includes humans. DILMUN is a Gods only resort.
