Top 10 Unknown Wonders In the World




today we're counting down our picks for the top 10 underappreciated wonders of the world .For this list we're looking at those places on our planet, that perhaps don't receive the coverage. They deserve the seven ancient wonders of the world and the new seven wonders are not included ,because as incredible as they undoubtedly are .We feel they have enough recognition already.

Chartres Cathedral

Its a definite high point of French gothic art and architecture. Chartres Cathedral is often overlooked,
usually in favor of Paris's more immediately famous not to them. However Chartres is an almost perfectly preserved example of its era. It boasts pristine stained glass, two complementary spires on its West End. General architectural features that are largely unchanged since the early 13th century.

Angkor wat

Angkor wat often cited as the most significant place, never to have received wonder of the world classification. Angkor wat is one of our planet's largest religious monuments. It's also enormously popular, attracting more than two million tourists every year. A temple complex rather than one old
structure. It was built in the 12th century as a place for Hindu worship. By the end of the century it was converted to Buddhist uses. One of the first Western visitors to Angkor Wat Antonio de Madalena wrote it is like no other building in the world and he was right.

Ajanta Caves

Considered as one of the earliest examples of buddhist art and architecture anywhere in the world, the
agenda caves deserved to be a big deal. By most estimates many of the carvings date back as early as the second century BC .The caves are situated within dense jungle and were rediscovered in 1819, largely by accident by a British officer while on a hunt. Described by the Archaeological Survey of India as quote the finest surviving examples of Indian art. The caves insides offer ancient depictions of Buddhist teachings and figures of the Buddha himself.

Sigiriya rock fortress 

Also known as the lion rock of Sri Lanka .Sigiriya is the country's most visited historic site and a truly unique attraction. When King Kashyapa seized the throne ,he made sigiriya his new capital and fortress. The gigantic rock formation was decorated with distinctive artwork ,as well as a gateway adorned with a lion, thus the name lion Rock. After kashyap's death in 495 AD the site became a
Buddhist monastery and fulfilled this function until the 14th century. Now it's an archaeological melting pot,a geological peculiarity that offers a once-in-a-lifetime panoramic view.

Wave Rock 

Name a world-famous Rock located in Australia, most would only ever have one answer ayers rock
otherwise known as guru. However if you're ever down under, you could head to Perth take a three or four-hour tour out to hike and have yourself a geological experience that's a little less mainstream. This rock so named for obvious appearance related reasons,is some 2.7 billion years in the making.
Contrary to logical belief the best waves in Australia aren't always found in the books.

Ancient City Of Bagan

The capital of the kingdom of Bagan ,from the ninth to the 13th century.Bagan was home to over 10,000 religious temples. Now those numbers have dwindled but still there remain an unprecedented over 2,200 monuments, pagodas temples and buildings within the city. Scattered across 100 square kilometres it was once an international center for alchemy,astrology,philosophy and medicine. And
though it is no longer thrives as in yesteryear it remains one of the most magical places on earth.

Meteora suspended rock monasteries



With a name meaning suspended in air ,our next underappreciated place is incredible now but was even more so when first created. The Meteora complex is a series of monasteries carved into and built atop unique sandstone pillars rising out of the trees .Originally inhabited in the 9th century by religious recluse and monks the buildings were definitely difficult to access via a frightening Lee fragile rope and net pulley system. There are carved staircases now but the original inhabitants were real hardcore Hermits.

The White Temple

 Also known as wat rong khun today's most modern wonder, the white temple is a work in progress not expected to be fully completed until 2021. Privately owned and constructed by thai artist Chalermchai Kositpipat. It's situated in Thailand's Chiang Rai province and after falling into disrepair and being rebuilt by the artist opened in 1997. The temple is both a conventional place of Buddhist worship and an unconventional house for modern art and ideas. The Ubosot is its central building, inside of which are murals dedicated not to tradition but to contemporary events and idols.
Michael Jackson features here as does Freddy Krueger. There are images of the oil industry and terrorism because one day this will all be ancient history.

Meenakshi Amman Temple 

Considered as architecturally important to southern India as the Taj Mahal is to the north .The meenakshi temple is six hectares of unrivaled art, culture, legend and history. Said to be the home of triple breasted goddess Meenakshi, whose superfluous breast melted away upon marriage to Shiva. It houses an estimated 33,000 sculptures and welcomes 15,000 visitors a day ,many of those visitors stick around until closing. As well for an important daily ritual in which an image of Shiva is carried to Minkshi's bedroom to consummate their union.

angel falls 

At three thousand two hundred and twelve feet tall our winner is the world's highest uninterrupted waterfall and if that's not Wonder worthy then what is. angel Falls named after the US aviator who first flew over them. Have a legendary spot within the history of exploration. Notoriously difficult to
locate and even harder to navigate once you're actually there.They've become a sort of unofficial aim for any aspiring adventurer plus they're the inspiration for Paradise Falls in the Pixar film up. Quite simply they're beautiful, they're breathtaking and they beat everything else out there.
