What's the Longlist? It's the list for all the other great man-made spectacles in the world that haven't quite made my shortlist. I don't feel the need to research them or visit them, but as long as this blog is about the world's best man-made structures, they deserve some kind of mention. Today, the Temple of Heaven.
When will these ever end? Since first drawing my very first shortlist to select my Seven Wonders of the World, I've been coming across new places that also seem like reasonable candidates. Every time I update my list, I think "Yes, that's it now." Well, this time I really think that this will be it. These few tweaks to my list, they will be the final ones, and my shortlist will be completed. Yes, this will be it. No more.
Without further ado, let's get into it.
1. Umayyad Mosque aka The Great Mosque of Damascus, Damascus, Syria. ACCEPTED.
