When you think of the phrase Wonders of the World, perhaps the Colosseum in Rome, India’s Taj Mahal, and Peru’s Machu Picchu come to mind. A concept that dates back to fifth century BC as a way for the Greek and Persians to herald their achievements in art and architecture, today’s list of man-made and natural sights is much longer than the original seven wonders.
