Tracing 7 Wonders of the Ancient World in pictures

The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World are examples of brilliant human ingenuity and architectural marvels; so much so that even the greatest artists of modern times will have a tough time to replicate them today. These structures were built during the classical era and scholars believe that the compilation of this list started in the second century BC. From a time spanning from around 2650 to 3rd century BCE, these architectural masterpieces dotted the scenery for a range of purposes. While some were monolithic statues praising great deities and great tombs that had belongings of powerful kings, there were other structures built to test the limits of the civilised and technological prowess of mankind. A majority of these structures have been destroyed; in 2007, more than 100 million people voted to declare the New Seven Wonders of the World. Although the new list also boasts of brilliant man-made creations and is monumental, the original ancient wonders of the world prove how man tested his limits in those times too. Here is the full list of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World in its entirety.
