Worlds best Ruins to visit !

The Worlds most famous ruins sites

Angkor Wat Siem Reap, Cambodia Spanning roughly 250 miles, Angkor Wat is the world’s largest religious monument. It’s also a powerful throwback to the Khmer Empire, the Hindu-cum-Buddhist government of Southeast Asia that ruled between AD 802 and 1431. In fact, the entire structure of the wat—or temple—mirrors the Hindu cosmos. Today, it attracts scores of visitors yearly for its impressive infrastructure and spiritual atmosphere. And it’s not the only one of its kind—the once-capital Angkor is home to more than 50 temples.

The Worlds most famous ruins sites

Delphi Greece The Greeks considered Delphi the navel of the world, and journeyed there to have Pythia, the priestess of Apollo, predict their future with the help of oracles. These days, it’s as scenic as it is sacred—the ruins sit on the slopes of Mount Parnassus, in a picturesque mountain town removed from the hustle and bustle of Athens (but only by two hours).

The Worlds most famous ruins sites

Machu Picchu Aguas Calientes, Peru, the not-so-easy trek to the top of this Peruvian citadel, also known as "the lost cities," is well worth the insight you'll gain into ancient Incan culture. A hike on the Inca Trail offers views of Machu Picchu’s agricultural, urban, and religious areas, as well as the Intihuatana stone, a meter for important celestial periods (such as the equinoxes) that is said to shed insight into the spiritual world.

The Worlds most famous ruins sites

Pueblo Bonito Chaco Culture National Historical Park, New Mexico. At the Southwest’s four corners (where Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, and Utah meet), Chaco Canyon contains the awe-inspiring “great houses” of the region’s prehistoric pueblo people. The most impressive of these complexes is Pueblo Bonito, which contained more than 350 ground floor rooms and 35 kivas, or ceremonial rooms.

The Worlds most famous ruins sites

Tikal National Park, Guatemala the Maya left its imprint all over Central America, but Tikal might be the most impressive example of what life was like for pre-Colombian society. The onetime capital is a complex network of temples, palaces, and other societal structures for the roughly 120,000 inhabitants that lived there at its peak (around A.D. 800). These days, the tops of the temples offer incredible views of the surrounding rainforest.

The Worlds most famous ruins sites

Petra Jordan Remember the Canyon of the Crescent Moon in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade ? It was fashioned after the monastery at Petra, a Nabataean city that flourished from prehistoric times until an earthquake brought it to ruin. Rediscovered in 1812 by Swiss explorer Johann Ludwig Burckhardt, the lost city has since become one of the seven new world wonders, and its complex systems and ornate facades—carved right into the rose-colored rock—are revered among archaeologists.

The Worlds most famous ruins sites

Moai Easter Island, Chile, Polynesia’s easternmost island is home to some of the history’s most fascinating sculptures—the moai, multi-ton sculptures carved from quarry rock to represent the Rapanui people’s deified ancestors. The means by which the moai made their way from the quarry to their places on the hill has been the subject of much archeological debate. While the most recent theories assert that men used rope to rock the statues from side to side and forward, the Rapanui people say they simply walked.

The Worlds most famous ruins sites

Roman Baths in Bath, England First used as a Celtic shrine dedicated to the goddess Sulis, the baths became a quotidian spot for socializing and bathing (no small task then) in post-conquest Roman culture. After touring the baths and temple dedicated to the goddess Minerva, take a sip of spring-sourced mineral water. (There’s also tea available this is Britain, after all.)

The Worlds most famous ruins sites

Teracotta Army Xi'an, China In 1974, well diggers in China’s northwestern region of Xi’an struck the head of a sculpture, thereby discovering an underground network of 8,000 terra cotta soldiers—the army and afterlife accompaniment of China’s self-proclaimed first emperor Qin Shi Huang. It was not uncommon for emperors to start building their tombs when they took the thrown, but Qin Shi Huang took this task more seriously than others: To make sure no one knew the location of his final resting place, he buried all of its workers and artists alive.
