8th Wonders Of The World – The Need To Explore The Next

8th wonders of the world

8th wonders of the world are not something, in particular, it keeps on changing from time to time the title goes from different new buildings to structures to other designs, for now, UNESCO has given the title of 8th wonders of the world to Sigiriya in Sri Lanka whereas some say Milford Sound, New Zealand is a natural 8th wonder of the world, but the things get more interesting when you realize that Einstein has stated and given the title to compound interest stating anyone who understands the concept will earn and someone who doesn’t will pay it.

The list doesn’t stop at the real-life monuments it continues to the fictitious world and we get some pretty cool names there too and we would’ve loved it if they were real, the 8th wonders of the world has also been made it to the world of fiction with two names on the list and fan-favorite big-screen monsters King Kong a giant gorilla, appeared in many films from 1933 and Gorgo a giant 65 feet tall dinosaur-like creature rising from the sea near Nara island were considered as 8th wonder of the world and also the makers promoted the film with the label of 8th wonder of the world.  

Something Official, We Know 

As said earlier we know UNESCO has given the title of 8th wonders of the world to the Sigiriya in Sri Lanka if we talk about it as a 5th-century monument known for its old as time pre-Christian era art and it is a sight not to be missed. 


However, the title may be given to Sigiriya in Sri Lanka still there are monuments that are not on the list but worth be seen and appreciated whether they are from the pre-1900s or post the 1900s or maybe even before or after that era the monuments are unique in their own way and maybe they are not on the list of 8th wonders of the world but they worth a visit.
