Post  Paola fix on Sat May 28, 2011 8:14 pm

The seven wonders of the world, is a very famous list of awesome structures all around the world. Greeks had written the most important ones, The Great Pyramid of Giza, Hanging Gardens of Babylon, Temple of Artemis at Ephesus, Statue of Zeus at Olympia, Mausoleum of Halicarnassus, Colossus of Rhodes, and Lighthouse of Alexandria. However over time, the new seven wonders were built which you would most likely heard of, like the Christ the Redeemer Statue, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, The Great wall of China, in the northern borders of China, The Colosseum in Rome, Italy, the only structure from Europe making it to the top seven. The Petra, Jordan, on the edge of the Arabian dessert, it is famous for its many stone structures. The Machu Picchu, Peru, one of the 3 structures from Latin America, Amazon region in Peru the ancient city was best known as the left overs of the Inca civilization. The Taj Mahal, in Agra, India, an amazing mausoleum built by a muslim in the honor of his late wife. The Chichen Itza, in Mexico, it is the most famous temple city of the Mayas. There are many more, but have not made it to the top 7 in the world.
Probably over time more and more Wonders will be built and we will be able to see the difference and how much improvement the building might have.
