Seven Wonders at Eco Park – The coolest thing in town
The representation of the 7 Wonders in a recreational park is the first-of-its-kind in the country. Spreading over an area of three acres of land, the Seven Wonders at Eco Park Kolkata are:
India’s Taj Mahal
The Taj Mahal is an ivory-white marble mausoleum on the south bank of the Yamuna river in the Indian city of Agra. It was commissioned in 1632 by the Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan, to house the tomb of his favourite wife, Mumtaz Mahal.
If viewed from the particular angle like the picture above, one can even re-create the typical pose in front of Taj Mahal making this our favourite of all the seven wonders at Eco Park
Brazil’s Christ the Redeemer
Christ the Redeemer is an Art Deco statue of Jesus Christ in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It stands 98 feet tall, its horizontally outstretched arms spanning 92 feet.
Moai statues of Easter Island
Moai, or mo‘ai, are monolithic human figures carved by the Rapa Nui people on Easter Island in eastern Polynesia.
Among all the seven wonders at Eco Park this one looks the best after sunset
The Great Wall of China
Great Wall of China is generally recognized as one of the most impressive architectural feats in history. It would take around 18 months to walk its length!
