It may be harder than you think to Name All Seven Wonders of the World but until the end of time, no doubt it will be more difficult than naming seven. However, there are in fact the amazing ancient wonders, exquisite natural wonders of the planet and even modern engineering marvels of the modern world. Quite interestingly, most people may be quick to name the Great Pyramid of Giza out of the seven wonders of the world, and while it formed a significant part of the old wonders of the globe and its history, it is in fact one of the very modern wonders of the new era. Let us find out what makes the Great Pyramid of Giza the wonder that it is.

The first thing that makes the Great Pyramid of Giza the wonder that it is the incredible construction of the Great Pyramid itself. At the top of the pyramid lies the sky high base, upon which the Grandeur Wall stretches outwards towards the horizon. This wall of rock, plaster, stone and mortar is even lined with huge stone blocks carved into the shapes of animals and humans. These blocks are piled so densely that some of the layers are almost like small mountains. Furthermore, at the very bottom lay the majestic basalt columns which are the original works of the great Egyptian architect Khufu.

After completing the construction of the Great Pyramid and setting up the Wall around it, King Menes took another massive step towards beautifying the Pyramids. He ordered the builder to build the largest and most powerful of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. With this monumental construction the Builder also commenced the building of the Temple of Luxor, which is known today by the name of the Egyptian Museum. Under the Pyramid and alongside the Temple Menes constructed the Cheops Pyramid. This structure also bears the mark of a great engineering feat and scholars believe that the great Pyramids may have been built by Cleopatra herself using a model of her own created Great Pyramid.

Conclusion 

One of the best ways to explore the wonders and beauty of Egypt is to take a tour to the Great Barrier Reef in the island’s state of Australia. The reef is the largest in the entire world, stretching for over 400 miles along the eastern coast of the Caribbean. This incredible sight is only possible because of the Caribbean Sea, which was connected to the Atlantic Ocean centuries ago by means of a canal. Today, the Great Barrier Reef is considered one of the wonders of the earth, with the assistance of the water scenery, coral reefs, and the wind.
