SEVEN WONDERS of the ANCIENT WORLD
The notion of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World can be traced back to the fifth century B.C. These creations rivaled many created by nature in their size, majesty, and beauty. Six of the seven wonders no longer stand, having been destroyed by natural disaster or by humans.
v Great Pyramid of Giza
v Statue of Zeus at Olympia
v Temple of Artemis at Ephesus
v Mausoleum of Maussollos at Halicarnassus
v Colossus of Rhodes
v The Pharos of Alexandria
v The Hanging Gardens of Babylon
These Wonders, even though most of them have disappeared, are important historical monuments. They tell us a lot about the ancient world that, had they not existed, we would have no record of. The ancients left us their legacy as we will leave ours to future generations.
