The 8th Wonder
As most people know, there are only seven Wonders of the Ancient World. However, several sites have been proposed and, in some cases, dubbed the eighth wonder of the world. This list includes Lion’s Rock, an ancient mountain fortress in Sri Lanka, The Grand Canyon, carved by the Colorado River, India’s Taj Mahal, The Terracotta Army, meant to watch over China’s first emperor in the afterlife, and even The Empire State Building, found in the heart of New York City.
Despite all of these impressive submissions, none has ever been given the official title of ‘Wonder’. Nowadays, the expression, ‘The Eighth Wonder of the World’, has become commonplace, usually used by marketers to describe something only slightly out of the ordinary.
