New Wonders of the World

A Swiss organization began an attempt to establish the New Seven Wonders of the World in 2000.

Since the 2nd century BC, the original Seven Wonders list was prepared — and one person alone still existed (the Giza Pyramids). And individuals across the world have consented to vote more than 100 million on the Internet or by text. There was applause and jeers to the final results published in 2007 – several significant competitors, such as the Acropolis in Athens, have failed to cut off the results.

Great Wall of China

Wonderful could be subdued. One of the most significant structure undertakings globally, the Great Walloon of China, is generally believed to be approximately 8,850 km long, while the length of the controversial Chinese research is 13,170 kilometers (21,200 km). Work started in the 7th century AD and lasted for 2 thousand years. Although the construction is known as a “wall,” its long stretches have two parallel walls. The barrier also features watchtowers and barracks. However, its effectiveness was not so great about the wall. While it was intended to prevent invasions and attacks, the wall was essentially unsafe.

Chichén Itzá

Itzá is a Mayan town on Mexico’s Yucatán peninsula, flourishing in the 9th and 10th centuries CE. Several significant buildings and temples were created under the Mayan tribe Itzá, which the Toltecs highly inspired. The pyramid El Castillo (“the Castle”), which stands at 79 feet (24 meters) above the main square, was one of the most famous. The construction shows a total of 365 steps, as proof of the astronomical capabilities of the Mayans. The number of days in the celestial year. The setting sun throws shadows at the pyramid during the summer and fall equinoxes and gives the look of a serpent sliding down the Nordstairway; a snakehead is at the foot.

Petra

In the secluded valley, between sandy slopes and cliffs, lies the antique City of Petra Jordan. It did say to be one of the spots where Moses hit a rock and water poured out. The Nabataeans, an Arab tribe, later became their capital and flourished during this time and became a major commercial center, particularly for spices. The Nabataeans etched great carvers, temples, and graves into the sandstone, which changed colors when the sun shifted. Moreover, they built a water system to permit luxurious gardens and agriculture. Petra supposedly had 30,000 inhabitants at its height. However, as trade routes altered, the city began to deteriorate.
