New 7 Wonders of the World

Because of the disappearance of a great number of works like the seven wonders of the world, a reelection was done by an organization company in Switzerland. In this direction, work has begun to uncover new wonders found in the world. As a result, many works that exist in the world have been put on this scale, and the seven wonders of the Earth have been redefined during 6 years. Voting was done via internet and mobile phone. However, UNESCO ignored this call because everyone supported the  works in their own country and they demanded a fairer election. For this reason, the Seven Wonders of the World (Antiquity Exalted), known as the Antiquity ruins, are only regarded as valid by UNESCO.

In order to uncover the world’s new seven wonders, the Swiss-based organisation changed the selection technique this time, choosing itself 21 world wonders in a more objective way. Among them, the following seven wonders of the World were chosen by them.

The list of the chosen works

  1. Chichen Itza –  Yucatan, Mexico
    Chichen Itza
  2. Christ the Redeemer – Rio de Janeiro, Brasil
    Kurtarıcı İsa Heykeli
  3. Great wall of China- People’s Republic of China
    Çin Seddi
  4. Machu Picchu – Cuzco, Perú
    Machu Picchu Antik Kenti
  5. Petra Antic City, Jordan
    Petra Antik Kenti
  6. Colosseum – Roma, Italy
    Kolezyum
  7. Taj Mahal – Agra, India
    Tac Mahal

The Great Pyramid of Giza is known as the most honorable works ever done as it is the only which survived and has remained untouched by time and natural catastrophes.

The Haghia Sophia Museum, which has been turned into a museum after the Istanbul feast, has been nominated among 21 new candidates of the New Seven Wonders of the World. But because it was not among the first 7 candidates, it could not get into the new list of Seven Wonders of the World. Also, we have to mention that the eastern countries are the ones  which have maintained to enter the list. The Great Wall of China, which was made to prevent the attacks of all the lengths in the Turkish border has maintained to become a finalist. The result of a new organisation formed by the participation of more than 100 million people has received the support of many states, foundations and international organizations. The new world of the selected world is supported by many organizations, thus confirming the newly selected wonder.
