    At number one is Teotihuacán located on the bay of Mexico. There are a set of pyramid design like structures that are known locally as the Teotihuacán. History has it that the structure was built through the pre-Columbia age. This amazing place is made up of residential houses, murals as well as pyramids. It is actually believed that the place was a city to over 100,000 people.

    The area was settled by 400 BCE, but it did not experience large-scale urban growth until three centuries later, with the arrival of refugees from Cuicuilco, a city destroyed by volcanic activity. It is not known whether the basic urban plan also dates to that time. About 750 CE central Teotihuacán burned, possibly during an insurrection or a civil war. Although parts of the city were occupied after that event, much of it fell into ruin. Centuries later the area was revered by Aztec pilgrims.

    Karnak Temple

    upload_2019-2-5_15-13-30. upload_2019-2-5_15-15-1. upload_2019-2-5_15-14-32. upload_2019-2-5_15-15-38.


    Number two on the list is Karnak temple that is situated neat Luxor, Egypt. The construction is breath taking and one wonders how the early generation managed to build such mega structures with perfection without the aid of computer technology. It is a story of how heavily modern architectural design has borrowed from the past. Historians believe that the temple was constructed somewhere around the 16th century. It tells the story the advancement of Thebes.

    Bagan Temple and Pagodas


    Sitting comfortably at number three is Bagan Temple and Pagodas. Whereas it lies in ruins today, it is a story of genius. It is situated in Burma as the original city of Baga. It is believed to have been the epicenter of early civilization. Presently, a majority of temples and Pagoda are in deplorable conditions and are in dire need of urgent repair lest they fall down. This has been brought particularly by the refusal of the Burma military to have the temples be recognized as part of the world heritage site.
