1. Great Wall of China

The Great Wall of China is one of the most well-known wonders in the world. The ancient Chinese constructed the Great Wall to protect their country from invaders. They built the wall over many years, and different dynasties added sections to it. 

 

After 2,300 years of periodic construction, the Great Wall of China is now over 13,000 miles long. The Chinese built most of the Great Wall out of stone, but around a quarter uses natural barriers, like rivers and mountain ridges.

 

The best-known section of the great wall, built by the Ming Dynasty, stretches over 5,500 miles and dates from 1368 to 1644 CE. Take a virtual tour today and see this impressive wall that has attracted tourists from all over the globe.

2. Chichén Itza

Chichén Itza is in Yucatan, Mexico, a city that the ancient Maya inhabited. It attracts many architecture lovers and tourists interested in classical Mayan history.

 

The ancient city has survived since the year 5 BCE, and its main feature is the massive pyramid structure, El Castillo, which sits at the center of the town.

 

Chichen Itza was a sacred ceremonial place for the ancient Maya citizens, and it continues to inspire wonder in people today. Book your Amphy class today, and explore all the wonders that the ancient Mayan city of Chichen Itza has to offer.

3. Petra

Petra is a fascinating archaeological site located in Jordan, and it dates back to the year 300 BCE.

 

According to the UNESCO World Heritage Convention, Petra was an intersection between the Arabian, Egyptian and Syria-Phoenician cultures. Many different civilizations came to trade in this central city, and the city is truly a melting pot of ancient cultures.

 

The brilliant architecture displays both eastern and Hellenic influences, and some of the city sits in natural rock formations. Petra is the only place with classical Hellenistic temples alongside Arabic monasteries and castles built by the Crusaders. 

 

It is a must-see virtual tour, so reserve your slot today on Amphy Places.

4. Machu Picchu

Machu Picchu is a citadel in south Peru built by the ancient Incas. When the Spaniards invaded and wiped out the Inca people, Machu Picchu remained hidden, and the west did not discover it until 1911. 

 

Fortunately, today we can visit Machu Picchu and see the citadel and surrounding structures almost fully intact, including farming terraces, residential blocks, and spiritual temples. 

 

The citadel is a testament to the Inca’s successful empire, and it has lasted for many years as a historical site. It is an architectural wonder and one of the 7 wonders of the world. You won’t want to miss out on a virtual tour.

It was also known to the Romans as the Flavian Amphitheater, and it housed great crowds of up to 50,000 people.

The Taj Mahal is a mausoleum located in Agra, India. The emperor Shah Jahan oversaw its construction in 1631 CE, and he dedicated it to his late wife. 

 

It sits on the river Yamuna and is considered one of the most notable pieces of Muslim architecture that still survives today.
