The Seven Wonders of the World

The term “7 Wonders of the World” arose during the first Millennium BC due to the philosophers of the time. These works were performed by people who never used the robots or machines. Their original name is “Seven Wonders of the Ancient Transformation”. The reason behind this name is due to their ancient origin. Those works were selected by UNESCO. The only member of this list that continues to exist is The Pyramid of Keops, while only the remains of the 6 others exist. Two of those remains are found in my country (Turkey), while the others are exhibited in the museums.

The seven wonders of the world are: The Great Pyramid of Giza, the Statue of Zeus, the Temple of Artemis, the Lighthouse at Alexandria, the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon and the Colossus of Rhodes. Almost of the works were either done by Greeks or Egyptians. All the structures are characterized by the neediness of fine architectural constructions. They were all imposing and very difficult to be done. The most enchanting side of those works is that they are realized only by the human power. Unfortunately, most of them were unable to survive the earthquakes, storms and the wars between civilizations (except Egyptian pyramids).

The Great Pyramid of Giza is one of the most visited places in the world. Still several research studies continue due to its mysterious nature. The remains are found in Izmir Ephesus City and Bodrum. Many of the remains found in Turkey have been taken abroad during Ottoman period because they did not appreciate those works’ s artistic value. The other works have been worn out and become unrecognizable. Apart from their durability they could not go further than 2000 years. Those historical remains are continuously studied and due to those studies several insightful historical data have been drawn.
