1. The Great Pyramid of Giza — Egypt

The Great Pyramid of Giza — Pisa, Italy

The Great Pyramid of Giza, a remarkable symbol of the ancient civilization that once ruled over Egypt, is the final surviving reminder of one of the Seven wonders of the world. The Great Pyramid, along with the other pyramids in the Giza complex, has been maintained astonishingly well and is one of the UNESCO World Heritage site that is subject to strict protection. It is the tallest pyramid in the world and was so for more than 3,000 years until the Eiffel Tower came into existence in Paris in 1889. It was built more than 4,000 years ago.

2. Chrysler Building — New York City, United States America

Chrysler Building — New York City, United States America

For the first eleven months following its construction, the Chrysler Building held the record for world’s tallest building. The magnificent Art Deco architecture of the building continues to draw thousands of tourists today.

Despite not being as well-known as the Empire State Building, a lot of locals from the United States and tourists to New York City enjoy the Chrysler Building. The 1,046-foot (314-meter) tall structure was completed in 1930, and for its first year it held the record for the world’s tallest skyscraper.

3. Burj Khalifa — Dubai, UAE

Burj Khalifa — Dubai, UAE

The Burj Khalifa is not just the world’s tallest building; it is also nearly three times as large as the Eiffel Tower along with being more than twice as tall as the Empire State Building at 828 meters (2,716 feet 6 inches) tall.

The Guinness World Records recognized the Burj as the highest structure around the world as well as a number of other outstanding accomplishments for the remarkable building.

For instance, it boasts the Most floors in a building (163), the Tallest elevator in a structure (504 m; 1,654 ft), and the Highest Restaurant from Ground Level (441.3 m; 1,447 ft 10 in).

4. Petronas Towers — Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Petronas Towers — Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

The Petronas Towers are 88 storeys tall and 452 meters above Kuala Lumpur. They are shaped like an “M” to symbolize Malaysia and are connected by the largest double-decker bridge in the world, which is located in between the 41st and 42nd floors. Even though visitors can cross the bridge and enjoy some breathtaking views, it was actually built to prevent the towers from collapsing in strong winds.

5. The Taj Mahal — Agra, India

The Taj Mahal — Agra, India

The Taj Mahal, an outstanding example of Mughal architecture that is occasionally regarded as among the most beautiful buildings ever created, is recognized as the world’s most popular mausoleum.

As the “crown of palaces” of Agra, this magnificent white marble mausoleum was built in 1653 as a symbol to the emperor Shah Jahan’s wife’s everlasting love. The white-marble structure, which is also one of the Seven Wonders of the World, changes throughout the day from pink in the early morning sunlight to milky white in the nighttime, and from white to golden in the moonlight.

6. The Lotus Temple — New Delhi, India

The Lotus Temple — New Delhi, India

The Lotus Temple is a place of worship that was built in 1986.

The Lotus Temple is a Bahá’í institution of worship that was built in New Delhi, India. It is renowned for its distinctive architectural design, which is fashioned after a sizable lotus flower. The structure is made up of 27 free-standing petals composed of concrete and covered in white marble from Greece’s Penteli mountain. It also has a greenhouse, pathways, ponds, and a main prayer hall.

7. Metropolitan Cathedral of Brasilia — Brasília, Brazil

Metropolitan Cathedral of Brasilia — Brasília, Brazil

The Cathedral of Brasilia, a masterpiece of modernist architecture that sits in the middle of the Monumental Axis, is a defining feature of the country’s capital city. It was the first idea for a city that the renowned architect Oscar Niemeyer worked on before dedicating his life to it.

Given that Niemeyer envisioned this volume as a form of profound religious expression and purity from every angle, the true aesthetic concept of the Brasilia Cathedral’s hyperbolic construction is to evoke the sensation of both hands pointing upward. Some consider it to be the crown of our Lord Jesus.

8. La Mezquita — Spain

La Mezquita — Spain

Since the late 8th century, when Muslims dominated Al-Andalus (Muslim Iberia, which included most of Spain, Portugal, and a tiny portion of Southern France), La Mezquita, or the Great Mosque of Córdoba, has been one of the oldest buildings still standing. Travelers from around the world travel to Córdoba, which is two hours south of Madrid by train.

Although it wasn’t always utilized as a mosque (1236 to be exact), at one point it was the biggest in al-Andalus as well as the city. Its hallucinogenic interior, a dreamscape of candy-striped arches heaped atop arches separating light from shade, still hushes the chattering into silence and the jaded into amazement almost a millennium later.

9. Sydney Opera House — Sydney, Australia

Sydney Opera House — Sydney, Australia

The Sydney Opera House, an architectural wonder of the modern period, redefines the ideas of beauty and usability. This renowned performing arts center is a shining example of revolutionary architecture. You can take in a concert there, examine its distinctive shell-like construction, or just take in the breathtaking views of Sydney Harbour.

The Opera House was designed by Danish architect Jørn Utzon, opened in 1973 after an expense of $102 million AUS, which was fifteen times over budget. It is Sydney’s most recognizable landmark and one of the most unique structures of the 20th century. Three tower cranes, each costing $100,000 AUS and made specifically for the Opera House, were used to erect the structure’s “sails”.

10. Leaning Tower of Pisa — Pisa, Italy

Leaning Tower of Pisa — Pisa, Italy

The cathedral bell tower of the Italian city of Pisa is known as the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

The Leaning Tower of Pisa is a popular medieval building in Pisa, Italy, that leans around 15 feet (4.5 meters) away from the perpendicular due to the sinking of its foundations in the late 20th century. The cathedral bell tower of the Italian city of Pisa is known as the Leaning Tower of Pisa. The 56m tower, known for its unintentional tilt, took almost 200 years to complete.

The 3m-thick, unstable subsoil and shallow foundations were to blame for the shift. Later on, it was completed in 1372. Throughout the tower’s existence, tilt correction attempts were made. Some of them worsened the issue, and by the 1990s there were worries the tower might completely collapse.
