We wrote in March about a worldwide poll to select the "New 7 Wonders of the World." The Taj Mahal was among 21 sites in the running. While this contest made only minor waves in the US, when I was in India, there was nonstop coverage about it and news channels were running items on their "crawls" several times a day asking viewers to vote via text message.
So with millions of Indians voting, when the announcement of the winners came out of 07.07.07, it was no surprise that the Taj made the list. See the list below (click to magnify) and at New7Wonders.com. Post your comments below.
