[UPDATE: The Taj made the list when it was announced on 07.07.07. See SAJAforum posting here.]
The Taj Mahal is one of 21 sites around the world competing for the title of the New 7 Wonders of the World. The competition is taking place through an online poll that has received 24 million votes so far, from people in 185 countries. The organizers of the New7Wonders campaign are hoping to get 100 million votes by July 7, when the 7 winners are announced.
Other sites competing for the honor are the Acropolis, the Great Wall of China, Angkor Wat, Stonehenge and the Eiffel Tower. The Statue of Liberty is also on the list; its candidacy is set to get a promotional blitz. See the complete list.
The competition has generated some controversy, namely from the Egyptian government, which doesn't think the Pyramids of Giza should have to compete to stay on the list (the Pyramids are the only site still remaining from the Ancient Wonders list):
