New 7 wonders of the world you do not know

Our universe has been made more fascinating by the presence of sundry natural beauties. Observing development with an eye to aesthetics help us toward the achievement of the great course ahead of us.

There were certain wonders of the world which are now open secrets. Apparently, these wonders of the world have now been reduced to seven. These seven wonders have kept the universe gaping. They are as follows:


1. Taj Mahal



Taj Mahal is a symbol of love completed by 20,000 plus labourers and 1,000 elephants. The construction begun in 1632 and was conducted by Emperor Shah Jahan. He built this wonder in honor of his beloved wife, Mumtaz Mahal, who gave him 14 children and died in labor.


2. Petra- Jordan


Jordan


Petra is the world-famous archaeological site. It is located in the southwestern desert of Jordan. Petra reflects the authentic Greek architecture that attracts millions of travelers across the world.


3. Rome Colosseum- Rome



Rome is an elegant ancient city. Roman Colosseum was built around 80 A.D., and it can accommodate 50,000 people in tiered seating. You will feel like you are in the sets of gladiator movie once you enter this place. It is an amazing spot, apart from the destructions caused by earthquakes, vandals and fire.


4. Christ the redeemer statue- Brazil


Christ, the Redeemer Statue was constructed between 1922 and 1931. This 98 feet tall iconic statue is made to neutralize the increasingly “sinful” nature of the Republic of Brazil, which had separated church from state in 1889. Usually, Christ statues come with a cross, but this one has open arms which are depicted as a symbol of peace.


5. Chichen itza- Mexico



Chichen itza is the largest and famous pyramid in the Yucatan peninsula in Mexico.


6.Machu Picchu- Peru



Machu Pichu is an Incan city located in the Andes Mountains in Peru, above the Urubamba River valley. According to historians, the architectural complex was built in the 15th century, approximately, by the Inca Pachacutec. The former use of this place remains a mystery. The site itself is an earthquake-prone area, but the stones in this building bounce through the tremors and then fall back into place, keeping this place intact for years. Don’t you think that is strange?


7. Great wall of China


This is the most fascinating among all. The Great Wall of China was built by hands of men and took more blood than you can imaging. That is to say, many individuals died during the period of construction. Presently, it is more than 2,300 years old. The official length is 21, 196.18 km. In December 1987, the Great Wall was placed on the World Heritage List by UNESCO.
