If you want to see the 7 wonders of the world without shelling out your life savings, get this. Delhi will be home to a one of a kind park that will have exact replicas of all the 7 wonders of the world.

Why should you visit the park?

Soon, tourists and residents of Delhi can pay a visit to Wonders of the World Park at Sarai Kale Khan and take in the grandeur of the park and the seven wonders of the world. Exact replicas of the Taj Mahal, Eiffel Tower, Leaning Tower of Pisa, Rome’s Colosseum, Christ the Redeemer, Great Pyramid of Giza and the Statue of Liberty will be open to the public when the park is inaugurated in the second week of February.

Each of the world wonders is a testament to the original in that the replicas capture the essence of the wonders so well, it's almost as good as the real one. Information boxes will also placed near the replicas to give some background and information to the visitors. All the replicas, except the Eiffel Tower which is 70 feet tall, will remain at a height of 25 to 30 feet.

What makes it special?

Visitors would find it interesting that all the seven monuments have been coated with materials from recycled and upcycled automobile parts. The officials have thoroughly gone on to inspect the coatings and construction strengths to ensure their longevity. As of now, they are currently focusing on the landscaping of the park and general beautification of the place. Additionally, they plan to place high energy lights all around the park and also highlight the intricate details of each monument.

According to reports, South Delhi Municipal Corporation has installed three mega solar trees that harness energy and that’s what the park runs on. All the electronics here are solar powered, making for a great environment saving technique. Reports also state that with the amount of solar panels present in the park, it could create more than just necessary energy that could be used for other environment friendly activities.

Another nifty feature is that the solar trees also have a provision for a mist cooling technique that will allow water to pass through the tiny misting nozzles. Tiny water droplets will be evaporated by absorbing the heat in the environment, thereby tackling pollution in the city.

The entire project cost the SDMC a sum of ₹7.5 crores. The idea was taken from Kota, Rajasthan, where a similar park already exists. With a few improvements in this one, the SDMC aims to make it a tourist friendly, fun-for-all ages spot where you can learn as well as experience something new. They have also promised regular upkeep and renovations to the park to ensure it never goes out of style.
