Item Details

Long ago, Greek writers created a list of the seven wonders of the world. But that list only included the incredible monuments and other marvelous structures the writers knew about - which were all located in Greece and its surrounding countries. the writers were not aware of the many wonders in other parts of the world. Asia is home to some of the world's oldest civilizations, and those ancient people also created some amazing wonders. They built a wall thousands of miles long to hold back a fierce army of invaders. They created a statue so big ten adults can stand on its hand. They built a temple meant to look like a mountain, covered in statues and pictures. What other ancient treasures does Asia hold? Some are hidden in deep jungles or on towering mountain ranges, and some can even be found in modern cities that grew around them. You're about to begin your search for the seven wonders of Ancient Asia!
