New 7

Posted on: October 18, 2006

It is a shame but only one of the original seven wonders of the world is still standing, so to speak – the Pyramids of Giza in Cairo. So now, New7Wonders, a non-profit Swiss foundation which specializes in the preservation, restoration and promotion of monuments is inviting the public to vote on a new set of 7 wonders.

“The other original seven wonders of the ancient world were the Hanging Gardens of Babylon; the Statue of Zeus at Olympia; the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus; the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus; the Colossus of Rhodes and the Lighthouse of Alexandria.”

“The only criteria for the new list is that the landmarks were built or discovered before 2000.”

Read the list and full story here and cast your votes at the New7wonders website.
