Hey guys am bringing to you some world tourist attraction, just chill and grab some popcorn i promise to make this fun.
No1. The colosseum in Rome.
The Colosseum or Coliseum,
also known as the Flavian Amphitheatre (Latin:
Amphitheatrum Flavium; Italian: Anfiteatro Flavio [amfite
ˈaːtro ˈflaːvjo] or Colosseo [kolosˈsɛːo]), is an oval
amphitheatre in the centre of the city of Rome, Italy. Built of
concrete and sand,[1] it is the largest amphitheatre ever
built. The Colosseum is situated just east of the Roman
Forum. Construction began under the emperor Vespasian in
72 AD,[2] and was completed in 80 AD under his successor
and heir Titus.[3] Further modifications were made during
the reign of Domitian (81–96).[4] These three emperors are
known as the Flavian dynasty, and the amphitheatre was
named in Latin for its association with their family name
(Flavius).
The Colosseum could hold, it is estimated, between 50,000
and 80,000 spectators,[5][6] having an average audience of
some 65,000;[7][8] it was used for gladiatorial contests and
public spectacles such as mock sea battles, animal hunts,
executions, re-enactments of famous battles, and dramas
based on Classical mythology. The building ceased to be
used for entertainment in the early medieval era. It was
later reused for such purposes as housing, workshops,
quarters for a religious order, a fortress, a quarry, and a
Christian shrine.

The great wall of china

The Great Wall of China is a series of fortifications made of
stone, brick, tamped earth, wood, and other materials,
generally built along an east-to-west line across the
historical northern borders of China to protect the Chinese
states and empires against the raids and invasions of the
various nomadic groups of the Eurasian Steppe. Several
walls were being built as early as the 7th century BCE;[2]
these, later joined together and made bigger and stronger,
are now collectively referred to as the Great Wall.[3]
Especially famous is the wall built 220–206 BCE by Qin Shi
Huang, the first Emperor of China. Little of that wall remains.
Since then, the Great Wall has on and off been rebuilt,
maintained, and enhanced; the majority of the existing wall
is from the Ming Dynasty.

The Taj Mahal

The Taj Mahal (/ˌtɑːdʒ məˈhɑːl/, more often /ˈtɑːʒ/;[3]
Persian for "Crown of Palaces", pronounced [ˈt̪aːdʒ mɛˈɦɛl])
is an ivory-white marble mausoleum on the south bank of
the Yamuna river in the Indian city of Agra. It was
commissioned in 1632 by the Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan
(reigned 1628–1658), to house the tomb of his favorite wife,
Mumtaz Mahal. The tomb is the centrepiece of a 42-acre
complex, which includes a mosque and a guest house, and
is set in formal gardens bounded on three sides by a
crenellated wall.

The great Pyramid of Giza

The Great Pyramid of Giza (also known as the Pyramid of
Khufu or the Pyramid of Cheops) is the oldest and largest
of the three pyramids in the Giza pyramid complex
bordering what is now El Giza, Egypt. It is the oldest of the
Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and the only one to
remain largely intact.
Based on a mark in an interior chamber naming the work
gang and a reference to fourth dynasty Egyptian Pharaoh
Khufu,[1][2] Egyptologists believe that the pyramid was built
as a tomb over a 10 to 20-year period concluding around
2560 BC. Initially at 146.5 metres (481 feet), the Great
Pyramid was the tallest man-made structure in the world for
more than 3,800 years. Originally, the Great Pyramid was
covered by casing stones that formed a smooth outer
surface; what is seen today is the underlying core structure.
Some of the casing stones that once covered the structure
can still be seen around the base. There have been varying
scientific and alternative theories about the Great Pyramid's
construction techniques. Most accepted construction
hypotheses are based on the idea that it was built by moving
huge stones from a quarry and dragging and lifting them
into place.

The Stonehenge

Stonehenge is a prehistoric monument in Wiltshire,
England, 2 miles (3 km) west of Amesbury and 8 miles
(13 km) north of Salisbury. Stonehenge's ring of standing
stones are set within earthworks in the middle of the most
dense complex of Neolithic and Bronze Age monuments in
England, including several hundred burial mounds.[1]
Archaeologists believe it was constructed from 3000 BC to
2000 BC. The surrounding circular earth bank and ditch,
which constitute the earliest phase of the monument, have
been dated to about 3100 BC. Radiocarbon dating suggests
that the first bluestones were raised between 2400 and 2200
BC,[2] although they may have been at the site as early as
3000 BC.[3][4][5]
The site and its surroundings were added to UNESCO's list of
World Heritage Sites in 1986 and it is a legally protected
Scheduled Ancient Monument. Stonehenge is owned by the
Crown and managed by English Heritage; the surrounding
land is owned by the National Trust.
