After the death of his father, King Jahangir, in 1627, Shah Jahan emerged the victor of a bitter power struggle with his brothers, and crowned himself emperor at Agra in 1628. At his side was Arjumand Banu Begum, better known as Mumtaz Mahal (Chosen One of the Palace), whom he married in 1612 and cherished as the favorite of his three queens.In 1631, Mumtaz Mahal died after giving birth to the couples 14th child. The grieving Shah Jahan, known for commissioning a number of impressive structures throughout his reign, ordered the building of a magnificent mausoleum across the Yamuna River from his own royal palace at Agra. Construction began around 1632 and would continue for the next two decades. </body> </html>

The next recordings of christ the redeemer history is in 1924 when Dom Pedro personally led the first official expedition to Corcovado Mountain, resulting in the opening of an accessable way up. Then in 1859 the Vincentian father Pedro Maria Boss arrived Rio de Janeiro and was struck by the mystorious beauty of the corcovado mountain and suggested the the construction of a religous monument in honour of Princess Isabel, which in 1921 gave way for the idea of a great statue of christ viewable by all in the marvelous city of Rio. From 1859 to 1921, Dom Pedro gave his consent for the building of the Corcovado Railroad line between Cosme Velho and Paineiras, which would be an essential part of undertaking the Redentor. </body> </html>

It was built on the site of an artificial lake created by Nero in this valley between Rome's many hills, in front of his Domus Aurea palace.The arena was then known as the Flavian Amphitheatre, after the family name of the emperors who built it. The name "Colosseum" was not used until 7th century, , the sun god. It remained standing until the Middle Ages, when it was probably melted down for its bronze.The amphitheatre was used for gladiatorial combats, mock sea battles, animal hunts, executions, re-enactments of famous battles, and dramas based on Classical mythology. The inaugural festival of the Flavian Amphitheatre, which was the largest amphitheatre in the world, lasted 100 days, during which over 5,000 wild beasts were killed in the arena.The arena was restored in about 230 AD by Emperor Alexander Severus (222-35). The statistics of those who met their deaths at the Colosseum during another festival, held in 240 AD, are staggering: 2,000 gladiators; 70 lions; 40 wild horses; 30 elephants; 30 leopards; 20 wild asses; 19 giraffes; 10 elks; 10 hyenas; 10 tigers; 1 hippopotamus; and 1 rhinoceros. </body> </html>

They migrated westward in the 6th century BC and eventually settled at Petra. Little is known about the Nabateans' history before 312 BC, when Petra was unsuccessfully attacked by Seleucid forces. The High Place of Sacrifice was probably built during this time.As the Seleucid kingdom weakened in the 2nd century BC, the Nabataean kingdom increased in strength. The chief source of the Nabataeans' prosperity and power was their monopoly on the caravan spice trade that involved such distant places as China, Egypt, Greece, and India and passed from the Arabian interior to the coast.</body> </html>

Upon Toltec took over, they modeled many of the buildings on those of their former capital at Tula. Different styles of architecture are found in different Mayan regions, all based on the differences of culture and resources available for the establishment of the settlements. What you will find in Palenque will very different from what you will find in Copan; just as the structure of architecture, design and layout will be different in Chichen Itza from that in Tikal. Toltec rule ended when the city fell to Hunac Ceel, ruler of the neighbouring city-state of Mayapn, in 1221. Upon the arrival of the Spanish conquest in the 16th century, the site had long been abandoned fallen into ruin, the Maya never saw Spanish ships coming to the new land as Mel Gibson would like to think. One theory suggests that many of the Maya from the larger settlements, namely Chichen Itza Palenque, Tikal and Copan, all left and migrated deeper into the jungle. The reason for this is still unknown, but it is suggested that lack agricultural resources was one of the causes. </body> </html>

7.GREAT WALL OF CHINE

<html> <head><title>Great Wall OF CHina</title> </head><body bgcolor="skyblue"> <center><img src="china wall/c.jpg" border=2 width=300 height=200><br> <a href="china wall photos.html"> View More Pictures</a></center><br>The Great Wall of China is not a continuous wall but is a collection of short walls that often follow the crest of hills on the southern edge of the Mongolian plain. The Great Wall of China, known as "long Wall of 10,000 Li" in China, extends about 8,850 kilometers (5,500 miles).Some additions and modifications were made to these simple walls over the next millennium but the major construction of the "modern" walls began in the Ming Dynasty (1388-1644 CE).The Ming fortifications were established in new areas from the Qin walls. They were up to 25 feet (7.6 meters) high, 15 to 30 feet (4.6 to 9.1 meters) wide at the base, and from 9 to 12 feet (2.7 to 3.7 meters) wide at the top (wide enough for marching troops or wagons). At regular intervals, guard stations and watch towers were established.Through Western contact with China from the 17th through 20th centuries, the legend of the Great Wall of China grew along with tourism to the wall. Restoration and rebuilding took place in the 20th century and in 1987 the Great Wall of China was made a World Heritage Site. Today, a portion of the Great Wall of China about 50 miles (80 km) from Beijing receives thousands of tourists each day. </body> </html>

HISTORY

<html> <head> <title>History</title> </head> <body bgcolor="skyblue"> <h2><font color=green>History of Seven Wonders of World</font></h2> The 'Seven Wonders of the World' is a widely-known list of seven outstanding manmade constructions of classical relics. Seven Wonders of the World was based on guide-books popular among Hellenic sight-seers and only includes works located around the Mediterranean rim. Later record include those for the Medieval World and the Modern World. The historian Herodotus (484 BCca. 425 BC), and the scholar Callimachus of Cyrene (ca 305240 BC) at the Museum of Alexandria, were the first to make the list of "seven wonders". But now only references have survived. The earliest existing version of a list of seven wonders was accumulated by Antipater of Sidon, who portrayed the structures in a poem around 140 BC. </body> </html>
