By | Update Date: May 09, 2021, 00:45 IST

This world is very beautiful. Nature has made this world very colorful with its color. With the union of sea, mountain and land, nature has prepared for us such a vision, which to imagine is sometimes like a dream for a human being. Nature has added so much color in the world that the desire to make it more beautiful has also arisen in humans. Sometimes for his remembrance, sometimes for surrendering to art, sometimes due to some other reason, humans have done many such creations which have made this world even more beautiful. Just like in the world, there are thousands of such human-made creations, which you will see in the world, but the matter of the seven wonders of the world is different. Seven wonders of the world always remain the subject of discussion for their craft, architecture and building art.

The Great Pyramid of Giza

The composition of these pyramids in Egypt is a puzzle. The specialty of this pyramid built in memory of Pharaoh Khufu is that it is built by cutting stones into water, placing one stone on top of another. The stones have been placed in such a way that there is no place to penetrate even a hair in it. It is still facing the brunt of time. The artisans gave shape to this work using mathematics.

Hanging Gardens of Babylon

As the name suggests, how strange will this building be. It was one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. It was built in ancient Babylon, near what is now called Al-Hilah in Iraq. The park was built by King Nebuchadnezzar II in 600 BC. He built this garden to please his wife, but due to time, this strange wonder was buried. This garden was destroyed in the earthquake.

Lighthouse of Alexandria

Another marvel of the world was found in Egypt and that was the Pillar of Alexandria. It is believed that this lighthouse was designed to guide sea sailors. The height of this building, built thousands of years ago, is said to be up to 450 feet. This lighthouse, built in memory of Pharos, the god of Egypt, has now become a history.

Statue of Zeus at Olympia (Greece)

The statue of Zeus in Olympia is one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The idol was built by the Greek sculptor Fidius 432 years before Christ. This idol was installed in the Temple of Zeus, Olympia, Greece, located in Olympia, Greece. In this statue, Zeus was shown in a seated position. The height of the statue was 12 meters. Due to fire, this building can also be seen only in the pages of history.

Mausoleum at Halicarnassus (Turkey)

This building in Halicarnaceus is 150 feet high and is in the shape of a mausoleum. This building was built in 623 BC. This building, built by a ruler named Mausolus, is known as his remembrance.

The Temple of Artemis (Turkey)

It took 120 years to build this temple dedicated to the Greek goddess Artemis. The original temple was destroyed due to several attacks. Alexander the Great built it again, but then it was destroyed by an attacker.

Colossus of Rhodes Memorial

Another architectural art of Greece was counted among the seven wonders of the world. The statue of Colossus of Rhodes was built around 300 BCE. It was built in the joy of King Rhodes's victory over the king of Cyprus. Before being destroyed, the statue had a height of about 30 meters, making it the largest building in the world. Due to the earthquake, this building was also buried in history.
