Real world origins

Ziggurats roughly translates to "to build on a raised area" in Akkadian, though the structures are typically more associated with the Sumerian civilization, with the most iconic and well-known Ziggurat being the Ziggurat of Ur. Despite being a Mesopotamia structure, in My Little Pony, the temple seems to be more inspired by Egyptian and American settings. The Sphinx is obviously Egyptian, while the structure itself and the tropical flora seems more reminiscent of Mexican pyramids, such as Chichen Itza, which furthermore fits the more stereotypical Aztec-Maya theme that the Daring Do mythos is based around. Furthermore, the outfits worn by its residents resemble the stereotypical wares worn by European explorers in the 19th and early 20th centuries.
