New Wonders Announced

Some of you might have read my previous post two weeks ago on the New 7 Wonders of the world.

The seven winners were announced on 07.07.07 at a glitzy show at the Benfica stadium in Lisbon after what is likely to be the biggest online poll at The entire event was a star-studded ceremony featuring a fanfare of musical performances and a parade of world dignitaries. There ceremonies were hosted by well known celebirities, Actresses Hilary Swank and Bipasha Basu and actor Ben Kingsley

More than 100 million votes (wow!) were cast worldwide and here are the results :

1. Chichén Itzá, Mexico

2. Christ Redeemer, Brazil

3. The Great Wall, China

4. Machu Picchu, Peru

5. Petra, Jordan

6. The Roman Colloseum, Italy

7. The Taj Mahal, India
