Petra is a city that lives in four dimensions. Or "living" to be precise ... My mind does not want to accept the fact that the majority of breathtaking huge rock palaces are a random centuries-old multinational random parts of Necropolis. Historically (Egyptian pyramids, for example) Necropolis was built to stand for thousands of years. Over the centuries temples and other religious structures were believed to be alive, and in the ordinary living quarters there was a short life to serve one or several generations.
No, Petra was not designed as Necropolis. Deep down the rocks, there were about twenty thousand people once there. The market with swimming pool, sauna, villa, a sophisticated water condition system, cinemas, government buildings and the Senate were ... it was just that time, earthquake, wind and sand were destroyed and all the worlds were concealed ...

While thinking about Petra, I always want to add another dimension which will take me to the depths of the mountain, because the traditional geometry does not seem to be sufficient enough to describe carefully the carved centuries old rooms, caves, storage spaces, Vedas , And obelisks. 

Christ the Redeemer-Brazil

The Exact dimensions of Christ the Redeemer statue in RIO DE JANEIRO are as follows: The Height of the Height is 38 Meters, the Height of the pedestal - 8 meters, the Weight - 1145 Tons, the hand Stretch - 30 Meters. It is believed that the idea behind the construction of the statue came on the 100th Anniversary of the independence of brazil in 1922. It appears that the story of the idol goes along with the deep roots in the past.
During a visit to Brazil in 1859, a Catholic priest Pedro Maria Boss was killed with the majestic beauty of the mountain of Corkowado. He was the one who had proposed to build a memorial for Christ at the top of the mountain. But at that time it was difficult to fulfill their aspirations: First Brazil's Court had no money, and then the monarchy was replaced by the Republican government. And since the church had been legally separated from the state, so forgot the idea of making a memorial.
The mountain was very striking to be empty, and the Catholic organizations of Rio de Janeiro raised this issue again in the XX century. The signatures were collected, the money gathered and as a result, this ambitious project was able to receive more than 2 million real ($ 250,000) of that time.
The administration of Rio de Janeiro announced a competition for the best design, which attracted many contenders. The winner was the Heater da Silva Costa. He proposed that the currency of Jesus Christ would be a cross with weapons spread with birds, and a huge pedestal would be a symbol of the world. Thus, the sculpture works in giving an idea to people - "Everything is in the hands of God."
The last design of the monument was done by artist Carlos Oswald. By offering several reforms, they rejected the idea of a world. And then, finally, everything was ready to build a memorial.
Construction lasted for almost nine years. For many reasons, the first and foremost technical, at that time, building a huge statue in Brazil was impossible, so all the parts including the frame were built in France.
Different parts were transported to Brazil, and then carried by the rail to the top of Mount Corcovado. The memorial was inaugurated on 12 October 1931. This date is considered the "birthday" of Christ's statue in Rio de Janeiro, and many festivals are celebrated annually.
The Statue was Repaired Twice - in 1980 and 1990, and in 2010 there was some Cosmetic Restoration: it was wasted with strange inscriptions, such as "when the cat is removed, the rats will be played" (The meaning of this act is unclear day).
The nightlight system was upgraded in 1932 and 2000. In 2007, this famous Rio de Janeiro landmark was chosen as one of the seven new wonders of the world.

Taj Mahal-India

Tajmahal Indian city Agra has a ivory-white marble mausoleum on the south bank of Yamuna River. In 2007, it was declared the winner of the World New 7 Wonders (2000-2007) initiative.
