Lisbon, July 8 (IANS) The Taj Mahal in Agra was included in the new Seven Wonders of the World announced at a star-studded ceremony held here, bringing joy to millions of Indians who had voted for the 17th Century monument of love.

Brazil's Statue of Christ Redeemer, Peru's Machu Picchu, the Great Wall of China, Mexico's Chichen Itza pyramid, Jordan's Petra and the Colosseum in Rome were also chosen as the modern-day wonders, according to a global vote by about 100 million Internet and telephone voters.

The new Seven Wonders of the World were announced Saturday night at a glitzy event at the Benfica Stadium here, featuring musical performances and was attended by several world dignitaries. Actors Ben Kingsley, Hilary Swank and Bollywood star Bipasha Basu hosted the ceremonies.

The grand monument in Agra was built in the 17th century by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal.

The global poll was carried out by a private body called the New7Wonders Foundation.
