The vast world is full of wonders, though different things may amaze different people. We call them the wonders since they are the sights that appear amazing because of their uniqueness on various aspects. Many are the overwhelming gifts of Nature. While some have been created exclusively by man. And when we talk about the Seven Wonders of the world, things which flash on our eyes from the pages of history are all man-made pieces of wonders. 
In fact, these wonders can be regarded as some architectural and sculptural milestones of the ancient Mediterranean and Middle East, as listed by various observers. The best known are those of Antipater of Sidon, one mathematician named Philon of Byzantium. 
Included on the list in its eventual form were the following:
 Pyramids of Giza;  Hanging Gardens of Babylon; Mausoleum of Halicarnassus; Temple of Artemis;  Pharos of Alexandria; Statue of Zeus; Colossus of Rhodes.
Each of them is indeed an amazing feat and creativity and was created in the ancient period when technology was still at its infancy. And each of them is a piece of engineering marvel, standing still now as an ancient historical monument. These are called the 
classical wonders of the ancient world.
 
However, man's passion for creativity never stood still.  The seven wonders of these antiquity inspired the compilation of many other lists of attractions by successive generations. Some of the great wonders featuring in most of those lists are provide in the section "More Wonders". While we marvel at these, world is creating more wonders for us and prosperity.
