(1)The Great Pyramid of Giza

Post by kimo » Tue Oct 26, 2004 8:28 pm

(1)The Great Pyramid of Giza
It is the one and only Wonder which does not require a description by early historians and poets. It is the one and only Wonder that does not need speculations concerning its appearance, size, and shape. It is the oldest, yet it is the only surviving of the Seven Ancient Wonders. It is the Great Pyramid of Giza.
Location
At the city of Giza, a necropolis of ancient Memphis, and today part of Greater Cairo, Egypt.
Contrary to the common belief, only the Great Pyramid of Khufu (Cheops), not all three Great Pyramids, is on top of the list of Wonders. The monument was built by the Egyptian pharaoh Khufu of the Fourth Dynasty around the year 2560 BC to serve as a tomb when he dies. :shock:

When it was built, the Great pyramid was 145.75 m (481 ft) high. Over the years, it lost 10 m (30 ft) off its top. It ranked as the tallest structure on Earth for more than 43 ce The structure consists of approximately 2 million blocks of stone, each weighing more than two tonsnturies, only to be surpassed in height in the nineteenth century AD. It has been suggested that there are enough blocks in the three pyramids to build a 3 m (10 ft) high, 0.3 m (1 ft) thick wall around France :shock:
Most impressive is the sharp-edged stone over the doorway which is over 3 m (10 ft) long, 2.4 m (8 feet) high and 1.3 m (4 ft) thick. All of the interior stones fit so well, a card won't fit between them :shock:

the 2nd one of 7 world wonder

•(2)The Hanging Gardens of Babylon

Fruits and flowers... Waterfalls... Gardens hanging from the palace terraces... Exotic animals... This is the picture of the Hanging Gardens of Babylon in most people's minds. It may be surprising to know that they might have never existed except in the minds of Greek poets and historians :shock: !
Location
On the east bank of the River Euphrates, about 50 km south of Baghdad, Iraq.

I've seen a real mummy!! I even have a picture of it. It's in the Vatican, although I can't remember whose mummy it is. It was not scary at all... Just a mummy :mrgreen:

One of the Seven Wonders

The Colossus
From its building to its destruction lies a time span of merely 56 years. Yet the colossus earned a place in the famous list of Wonders. "But even lying on the ground, it is a marvel", said Pliny the Elder. The Colossus of Rhodes was not only a gigantic statue. It was rather a symbol of unity of the people who inhabited that beautiful Mediterranean island -- Rhodes.
The construction of the Colossus took 12 years :roll: and was finished in 282 BC.[/quote]

It's a pity there weren't photo cameras during those times yet... It would be great to have an image of the real Colossus.

By the way, Kimo, when you copy a text from another font, you should tell us where you got it from ;) (I'm telling you because I just looked for the Colossus on Google and the first website I opened contains the very exact text you posted ;);))

It's a really interesting website: http://ce.eng.usf.edu/pharos/wonders/
