If you can see only three stunning man-made structures from around the world, these are the three top rated by travelers the world over:
Taj Majal, India
A stunning tribute to one of the greatest loves of all time, the Taj Majal was built to honour the most beloved wife of Mogul Emperor Shah Jahan, Mumtaz Mahal who died in childbirth in 1631 AD. The structure took 17 years to complete and has been described as the most beautiful building in the world. Composed of white marble, the structure rises on a 3 acre plot of land on the Yamuna River in Agra. Tourists flocking to the building are shocked at how truly stunning it is as photographs will never do it justice. You can look for packages and accommodations in India such as Kerala Taj Hotels to enjoy complete tours of the most stunning spots of India. The experience will leave you lost in wonder at how the mogul’s love is shown in the finite detail of this monument.
Pyramids of Giza
These imposing figures on the west banks of the Nile in Egypt have dumbfounded tourists for generations. The mystery of their existence is made all the more intriguing when you stand dwarfed by their majesty. These monuments were built 4,500 years ago and the fact they are still standing today in a barren desert is mind boggling. The tallest pyramid stands 450 feet tall and the way in which these structures were built is still debated to this day. You can discover the beauty of Egypt with many exceptional tours offering luxurious accommodations and experiences.
Statues of Easter Island
This Chilean-governed landmark is located 2,000 miles off the coast of South America and is believed to have been occupied by Polynesians. Their legacy is almost 1,000 statues standing an average of 13 feet tall and weighing approximately 14 tonnes. Carved of volcanic cone, these effigies strike a disturbing pose on a span of land left green but deserted since 800 AD. The uncertainty of how these statues came to be still has researchers scratching their heads and has given birth to many theories, none of them proven. Tours are offered through Chile and Hanga Roa for a truly unique travel experience.
