The famous pyramids of the Giza Plateau are the only surviving members of the Seven Wonders of The Ancient World, a list dating back to the Hellenistic period.[src] This list includes legendary structures like the Colossus of Rhodes, and the Temple of Artemis of Ephesus. All that remains of the Temple of Artemis of Ephesus is a few column fragments.
Photographs just don’t do the pyramids justice. I had a similar feeling after I saw the Taj Mahal for the first time. Regrettably the sky was thick with dust on the day I visited, which does not make for great photos. I also only had one day to experience this awesome site. At some point I would definitely love to go back there and take more time to explore. Learning about and experiencing ancient civilizations, has always been a fascinating topic for me. Give me a good set of ruins over a mega-mall any day!
Thanks for dropping by! I hope that you enjoyed my travel photos and commentary, and will return for more travel content in the future.
