Taj among top 3 world wonders

Jun 19, 2007 10:12 PM IST India India

New Delhi: The pristine, white marble monument of Taj has suddenly left great architectural cousins like Statue of Liberty, Great Wall of China and Angkor Vat far behind in the race for the seven new wonders of the world.

With less than three weeks to go before the final results of the worldwide poll are announced, the Taj has finally broken into the top three, overtaking even the Statue Of Liberty and the Great Wall of China.

Only 10 days back, the Taj Mahal was nearly grounded in the banks of the Yamuna as netizens were not giving enough votes for the Taj. Neither did enough SMSes flow in.

It seems that with just 17 days to go before the New Seven Wonder Foundation comes up with the final list, Indians are finally using their demographic strength.

The foundation told CNN-IBN that Machu-Pichu, the Inca monument in Peru, the Acropolis in Greece and the Taj were three frontrunners at this moment. They have not disclosed the exact order though.

The Taj could even be number one if Indians show their love for this monument of love and keep SMS-ing and voting till the last hour. Who knows the Taj could even emerge the first!
