There's a world-wide vote going on, to choose the new Seven Wonders of the World, since only one of the original seven is still standing (the Pyramids of Giza). There are twenty-one finalists to choose from, and my picks are:

1. Alhambra
2. Angkor
3. Hagia Sophia
4. Petra
5. Pyramids of Giza
6. Stonehenge
7. Taj Mahal

What are y'all's picks? And do you have any book recommendations to go along with them?

Happy voting :)

Chichen Itza and Petra really are both amazing to see. Can't speak to the others that you've posted thus far, and haven't checked the website yet.

Though I don't recall that Chichen Itza itself was specifically mentioned in 1491, other sites similar to it were. While I haven't read of anything about Petra, I'd be interested in hearing about it.

Hi, bfertig

I, along with 23 others in LT, have a wonderful book published by Barnes & Noble.

"Petra: Jordan's Extraordinary Ancient City" by Fabio Bourbon. It has stunning photos along with maps and great text. If you are an Indiana Jones fan, you have already seen a bit of it.

Edited to correct spelling. Sorry 'bout that. :)

I have to put a vote in for the Serpent Mound in Locust Grove Ohio. I have journeyed there in pilgrimage since 2001.
