Best 10 Most Historical Sights in the World

People believe that waking up early, going to office, returning home late and then sleeping again peacefully is a successful life without any worries. Such lives might be successful, but the fact is that such lives are not healthy and are not joyful either. If you want to enjoy your life, if you really want to live your life then just pack your bags and start traveling. The world is filled with amazing sites to see, sites that will make you feel alive again. Following are the 10 historical sites you must visit, these sites might be old but still they attract millions of tourists throughout the year from all over the world.

Machu Picchu

It had to be placed on the top of the list and you will realize that we were right when you see this place with your own very eyes. Machu Picchu is located in southern Peru, and this ancient city is situated high in the heart of the mountains only accessible through trains or a 4 day hiking period. This ancient city belonged to the Inca civilization but they fled when the Spanish invaded this region. This city has also been named as “The Lost City Incas” and was declared as a UNESCO heritage site in 1983. Due to exposure of this location through media, a lot of people started visiting the city, so, now according to a new law passed, only a small fraction of people are allowed to enter the city for a particular time period, so that this ancient city is not damaged by the tourists and regular maintenance can be performed.


Tikal is the best preserved ruins from Mayan civilization till today. This Mayan city-state is located in Guatemala. If you really want to enjoy this site, you need at least two days and this place looks real scary at night when it is just you, the jungle and wacky noises created by the insects. Tikal is easily accessible from the neighboring Belize, just a few kilometers away.

The Pyramids of Giza

Each pyramid is made up of 2 million gigantic stones, how these stones were lifted to the top? Nobody has a justified answer for this question till today. The pyramids of Giza are about three thousand years old and are perfectly aligned with the stars, how the Egyptians were able to align such colossal pyramids with the stars so much perfectly? Nobody has an answer to that question either. The pyramids have vast chambers and archaeologists believe that most of them have not even been discovered or opened yet. The largest pyramid out of the three was built by the pharaoh Khufu and near to this pyramid is located the sphinx, which is another marvelous piece of human engineering and is becoming a frustration for the archaeologists and others for decades. Now you still need more reasons to visit this place?

Angkor Wat

Angkor, an ancient city located in Cambodia was the major center of the Khmer Empire, which ruled the entire Southeast Asia for many years. This civilization somehow became extinct but left behind many magnificent temples which ruled the jungle for many years and now have become a source for the world to remember this civilization till eternity. The temples here are though filled with tourists throughout the year, but a group of similar temples to the Far East and South are least visited and are still in same condition as they were hundreds of years ago. So, the time is to visit these temples in the morning before you can see all those tour buses coming in. You at least need a week to really experience and see all the temples in the adjoining areas.


It is indeed a wonderful place to see and has also been included in the list of wonders of the world. Petra is a huge palace carved into a canyon, in Arabah, Jordan. The really attracting feature is that Petra was constructed in cluster of rocky canyons so that it could be easily guarded against floods if it rains hard, which is quite a rare possibility in Deserts. The Petra was discovered in 1812 by a Swiss explorer and before this the Westerners had no idea if Petra ever existed. It is believed that Petra was constructed in 6th century B.C. Petra also became a UNESCO heritage site in 1985 and compared to other Heritage sites in middle east, Petra has no complex chambers, but how much difficult it would have been to carve such a colossal structure in a canyon without any technology is still a question very difficult to answer.


Stonehenge is located in Salisbury, England. It is considered to be around 3,000 years old and the incredible feature of this structure is that the stone used are from Wales. Since these stones are huge in size archaeologists and other scientists wonder how these stones were brought here from Wales and did people lifted them to put it up the other two stones. The Stonehenge is now fenced and people are only allowed to see it from a mentioned distance i.e. tourists are not allowed to walk around in the circle.

Colosseum and Forum

Colosseum and Forum are next to each other and are located in Rome. The Colosseum is of great importance due to its age and also because it belongs to a civilization which ruled the then known world for centuries. Though you are not allowed to enter the ground where the gladiators fought till death and the basement where these fighters were kept. The forum is a good place to walk and most importantly it is free of any charge to enter.


Even after thousands of years after construction, The Parthenon still stands tall. There are ruins of other buildings in the surrounding which are worth seeing. The Parthenon is a great symbol of the Greek civilization. From here at Parthenon you also get an opportunity to view the city of Athens from a great location.

Easter Islands
The Easter Island is located in Chile in the Pacific Ocean. These gigantic statues as shown in the images are all that is left of this civilization. The statues are made up of volcanic ash. The huge heads of these statues are expertly carved which actually proves that people even in very early times were well aware and fond of artwork and illustrations. The archaeologists believe that this civilization became extinct due to constant wars.  

Taj Mahal

The Emperor Shah Jahan built the Taj Mahal as a symbol of his love for his deceased wife in late 1600s. The palace is located in Agra, India. It is also included in the list of the wonders of the world. In 1983, UNESCO declared it as a world heritage site. Approximately 2 to 4 million tourists visit India to see Taj Mahal, but now the number of visitors is restricted to a small amount because it was damaging the building. The main reason for the damage to the building is environmental pollution affecting the white marble, the building is constructed of.
