7 wonders of world

The Colosseum - Rome - Italy - 70-82 AD 

 This great amphitheater in the centre of Rome was built to give favors to successful legionnaires and to
celebrate the glory of the Roman Empire. Its design concept still stands to this very day, and virtually every
modern sports stadium some 2,000 years later still bears the irresistible imprint of the Colosseum's original
design. Today, through films and history books, we are even more aware of the cruel fights and games that
took place in this arena, all for the joy of the spectators.

The Taj Mahal (1630 A.D.) Agra - India

This immense mausoleum was built on the orders of Shah Jahan, the fifth Muslim Mogul emperor, to honor
the memory of his beloved late wife. Built out of white marble and standing in formally laid-out walled
gardens, the Taj Mahal is regarded as the most perfect jewel of Muslim art in India.
The emperor was consequently jailed and, it is said, could then only see the Taj Mahal out of his small cell

The Pyramid at Chichén Itzá (before 800 A.D.) Yucatan Peninsula - Mexico

Chichén Itzá, the most famous Mayan temple city, served as the political and economic center of the Mayan
civilization. Its various structures - the pyramid of Kukulkan, the Temple of Chac Mool, the Hall of the
Thousand Pillars, and the Playing Field of the Prisoners – can still be seen today and are demonstrative of
an extraordinary commitment to architectural space and composition.
The pyramid itself was the last, and arguably the greatest, of all Mayan temples.

The Christ Redeemer (1931) Rio de Janeiro - Brazil

This statue of Jesus stands some 38 meters tall, atop the Corcovado mountain overlooking Rio de Janeiro.
Designed by Brazilian Heitor da Silva Costa and created by French sculptor Paul Landowski, it is one of the
world’s best-known monuments.
The statue took five years to construct and was inaugurated on October 12, 1931. It has become a symbol
of the city and of the warmth of the Brazilian people, who receive visitors with open arms.

The Great Wall  (220 B.C and 1368 - 1644 A.D.) China

 The Great Wall of China was built to link existing fortifications into a united defense system and better
keep invading Mongol tribes out of China. It is the largest man-made monument ever to have been built
and it is disputed that it is the only one visible from space. Many thousands of people must have given
their lives to build this colossal construction.

Machu Picchu (1460-1470), Peru

 In the 15th century, the Incan Emperor Pachacútec built a city in the clouds on the mountain known as
Machu Picchu ("old mountain").
This extraordinary settlement lies halfway up the Andes Plateau, deep in the Amazon jungle and above the
Urubamba River.
It was probably abandoned by the Incas because of a smallpox outbreak and, after the Spanish defeated
the Incan Empire, the city remained 'lost' for over three centuries. It was rediscovered by Hiram Bingham in

Petra (9 B.C. - 40 A.D.) - Jordan

On the edge of the Arabian Desert, Petra was the glittering capital of the Nabataean empire of King Aretas
IV (9 B.C. to 40 A.D.).
Masters of water technology, the Nabataeans provided their city with great tunnel constructions and water
chambers. A theater, modelled on Greek-Roman prototypes, had space for an audience of 4,000.
Today, the Palace Tombs of Petra, with the 42-meter-high Hellenistic temple facade on the El-Deir
Monastery, are impressive examples of Middle Eastern culture.
