New Seven Wonders of the world Re-listed

As a follow up of my previous post Seven Woders Re-Listing, the waiting period is finally over. The seven wonders of the new world has been finally made public in Lisbon on what had been considered the perfect time for the declaration, 07-07-07. It was a gala ceremony to crown those marvelous monuments which made to the final list out of the twenty one. And as an icing on the cake, the Taj Mahal was respectfully there in the list of final seven. Phew! The eternal symbol of love has been able to make a charm impression.

But with there being this new list, I have a strong feeling that we might forget the wonders of the ancient world as time passes. At this point it would be perfect to list those past wonders in chronological order, only one of which sadly stand now:

  1. the Pyramids of Egypt,
  2. the Hanging Gardens of Babylon,
  3. the statue of Zeus at Olympia,
  4. the temple of Artemis at Ephesus,
  5. the mausoleum at Halicarnassus,
  6. the Colossus of Rhodes, and
  7. the Pharos Lighthouse at Alexandria

And now we have the list redone considering the wonders which still stand in the new world. And they are:

  1. Chichén Itzá in Mexico
  2. Christ Redeemer in Brazil
  3. The Great Wall of China
  4. Machu Picchu in Peru
  5. Petra in Jordan
  6. The Roman Colloseum in Italy
  7. The Taj Mahal in India

May the wonders survive for the eternal time. For details you may follow the official website of the New 7 wonders associaton.
