Works of art and architecture I would like to see in person

Nikia Harris

Taj Mahal I have always thought about going here. The Taj Mahal is an ivory white marble mausoleum. It was created by the then emperor Shah Jahan who reigned 1628–1658. It was created to house the tomb of his favorite wife, which was this third wife named Mumtaz Mahal
Egyptian Pyramids I have always loved ancient Egypt. Some of the earliest known pyramids were said to be constructed in 2630 BC. Most pyramids were built for pharos as their final resting place. I would like to be the first person to discover a tomb. Not for its riches but to see what they felt was important to bury him with.
The Colosseum The Colosseum which has another name called the Flavian Amphitheatre. The colosseum is not a true circle but more like an oval made out of a lot of concrete and sand. To see it now and imagine the history that went on there. Awnings were unfurled from the top story in order to protect the audience from the hot Roman sun as they watched gladiatorial combats, hunts, wild animal fights and larger combats such as mock naval engagements (for which the arena was flooded with water) put on at great expense. The vast majority of the combatants who fought in front of Colosseum audiences in Ancient Rome were men (though there were some female gladiators). Gladiators were generally slaves, condemned criminals or prisoners of war.
Stonehenge Stonehenge is a marvel. Archaeologists believe England most iconic prehistoric ruin was built in several stages, with the earliest constructed 5,000 or more years ago. To see what man was capable of without electricity, power tools and no cranes. Stonehenge's ring of standing stones are set within earthworks in the middle of the most dense complex of Neolithic and Bronze Age monuments in England, including several hundred burial mounds
The Leaning Tower of Pisa To believe it or not the tower's tilt began during construction, caused by an inadequate foundation on ground too soft on one side to properly support the structure's weight. The tilt increased in the decades before the structure was completed, and gradually increased until the structure was stabilized (and the tilt partially corrected) by efforts in the late 20th and early 21st centuries.
