TAJ MAHAL MADE IT TO THE NEW SEVEN WONDERS OF THE WORLD


The Taj Mahal, the 17th Century marble monument, was on Sunday picked as one of the New 7 Wonders of the World in the largest-ever online poll conducted by Swiss non-profit group New 7 Wonders Foundation.

The results of the worldwide online voting were announced at a grand ceremony in the Portuguese capital Lisbon, which aptly coincided with the date 07.07.07.

According to initial reports received here, the Indian monument of love received one of the highest shares of votes in the poll, which was conducted through Internet, SMS and on the phone.

About 100 million people had voted in the campaign through SMS and email. The campaign was begun in 1999 by Bernard Weber.

The official declaration ceremony began at Estadio da Luz in Lisbon minutes after midnight on Sunday. Bollywood actress Bipasha Basu is representing India and its pride Taj Mahal at the New Seven Wonders of the World event at the Benfica Stadium in Lisbon.
