Wonders of the World

These are some of the most amazing places on Earth - but do you know where they actually are? This is a combination of ancient, natural and modern man-made structures that inspire awe and wonder. Not limited by the traditional list of the '7 wonders of the world', here are 10 of the world's wonders, all you need to do is tell me where they are!
The Hagia Sophia is a Late Antiquity era building designed by Greek architects Isidore of Miletus and Anthemius of Tralles at the order of Byzantine Emperor Justinian I. It started as a church, but by the 15th century its role shifted to that of a Mosque that is still active to this day, but where is it?
An awe-inspiring white-marble mausoleum, constructed by the order of Shah Jahan for his favourite wife, Mumtaz Mahal, the Taj Mahal is an unmistakable structure with its distinct minarets and reflecting pool leading to the domed central building. It has since become an attraction drawing in tourists all over the world - but where is it?
Cristo Redentor, or Christ the Redeemer, is an Art Deco statue that has towered over its neighbouring city for nearly 100 years. Its 28 meter set of outstretched arms make for a distinct silhouette, but where can you see this remarkable statue?
One of the USA's most iconic landmarks, the Grand Canyon is a wonderful naturally carved, well, canyon, spanning over 200 miles as the river at its base meanders across the landscape. I've already given you the country, but which state would you need to visit to see the Grand Canyon?
Chichen Itza is a well-known location but is often misunderstood - it is an entire city that most tend to confuse with the Temple of Kukulcán, an iconic step-pyramid at the centre. If you wished to see the temple, and all that surrounds it, where would you need to go?
At a width of 1708 meters, Victoria Falls is considered to be the world's largest waterfall. This wonderful beauty spot sits on the border between two countries - but which two?
The largest coral reef system in the world, the Great Barrier Reef is the combination of nearly 2000 individual reefs to make for one of the most amazing natural places on earth. Of course, the reef is in the sea, but off of which coast would you find it?
The mountain citadel of Machu Picchu is little more than a ruin today, but that does not strip away its magic thanks to its wonderful location amongst the clouds. There is still plenty to see around this historical landmark, but where would you need to go to see it?
Finally is the Terracotta Army, a collection of terracotta sculptures in a necropolis spanning some 38 square miles. The tomb remains untouched to help preserve the artefacts within but some 8,000 soldiers have been found so far. If you wish to see the army in all its glory, where would you need to go?
