The Seven Wonders of the World in the ancient times was a list made by the Greeks in order to honor the most magnificent piece of architecture in their known world. Sadly today other than the Pyramid of Giza, none of the other wonders have been able to survive the test of time. Since then a new list has been made in order to acknowledge the modern Seven Wonders of the World.

On July 7, 1997, a new set of seven wonders was developed which was based on the online voting system from all around the world. The new Seven Wonders of the World are:-

No list of Seven Wonders is definite. These lists tell us how much the humanity has progressed and nature has evolved over the years. These wonders are nothing but the remainder of the accomplishments of mankind from history to the present.
