THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
What was the second Wonder of the World?
When people refer to the Seven
Wonders of the World, they are generally referring to the Seven Wonders of the
Ancient World, which were natural objects or structures that were considered to
be mind-blowing. The wonders have never officially been numbered although they
do generally follow in the same order.
It is by this order that the
second wonder of the world can be determined to be the Hanging Gardens of
built these gardens himself in 600 BC for his wife, Amuhia although it’s also
thought that the Assyrian queen, Semiramis, also had something to do with the
gardens. The gardens no longer exist but it’s thought that they were built on
the roof of a vaulted building, to allow for rising water and that the terraces
were thought to stretch from 75 feet to 300 feet.
This second wonder is sometimes replaced with the
Walls of Babylon although this sometimes replaces the seventh wonder.
