The Seven Wonders of the World

On June 16, 2007 I mentioned about the voting for the NEW 7 Wonders of the World. The voting is now complete and here are the winners.

  • Brazil’s Statue of Christ Redeemer
  • Peru’s Machu Picchu
  • Mexico’s Chichen Itza pyramid
  • Great Wall of China
  • Jordan’s Petra
  • Colosseum in Rome
  • India’s Taj Mahal.

How many of these have you seen in person?


  1. Jess says:

    What do you have to have to be one of the 7 wonders?

    the hype about the place/object? the difficulty of building the place/object? what? the significance of the object/place to the culture?

  2. Dean says:

    I have 1 crossed off my list: Chichen Itza! Went to Mexico about 3 years ago, we actually were allowed to climb on the outside and inside of the pyramid. I heard today it is now closed off.


  3. Jess says:

    I don’t really know the place you’re talking about because I’ve never been but oddly enough I heard from somebody, maybe from RUSAS that it’s closed because someone fell off of it?
