50 of the Most Important Landmarks of the World (Part 1)

Originally, a landmark literally meant a geographic feature used by explorers and others to find their way back or through an area. Now, a landmark includes anything that is easily recognizable, such as a monument or a building, or any other spot to designate places that might be of interest to tourists. A few examples are the Statue of Liberty, Uluru, the Taj Mahal, Mount Everest, and the Eiffel Tower. When we see one of those, everyone knows in which part of the world they are located. Here are 50 landmarks for you to recognize. Are you ready for a trip around the world? Oh, and in case you want to see more, check out 50 More of the most Important Landmarks of the World – Part 2

    Are you really biased against Turkey or have you never visited the country? You mention the little and unknown Hagia Sofia on Limni and not the world-famous one in Istanbul (actually both are churches originally). Visit Turkey and you can fill all 50 items on your list with the photos you will take there. This comes to you from a Belgian couple living in Turkey. Best wishes for your next trip…

    Nice pics.
    To quel some of these “touchy” internauts, just rename your post to “50 important landmarks of the world” There are others, but these are cool to see in one place. Do another one ” Another 50 important…..” with suggestions from the gallery.

    FYI
    The inuksuk may have been used for navigation, as a point of reference, a marker for travel routes, fishing places, camps, hunting grounds, places of veneration, drift fences used in hunting or as a food cache. The Inupiat in northern Alaska used inuksuit to assist in the herding of caribou into contained areas for slaughter. Varying in shape and size, the inuksuit have longtime roots in the Inuit culture.

    Historically the most common type of inukshuk is a single stone positioned in an upright manner. An inuksuk is often confused with an inunnguaq, a cairn representing a human figure. There is some debate as to whether the appearance of human- or cross-shaped cairns developed in the Inuit culture before the arrival of European missionaries and explorers. The size of some innaguait suggest that the construction was often a communal effort. Wikipedia

  48. Tilicho peak Expedition says:

    Mount Tilicho Peak is towers at the height of 7,134m. Mountaineers rate this as a technical climb, and not so easy. There are two ways to reach up to Base Camp. Tilicho Peak expedition starts up with a drive Khudi followed by several days trekking to the Tilicho Base Camp via Manang and Khansar Village as well as another way is a short mountain flight from Pokhara brought us to the dry and dusty hill town of Jomsom as well as start from Beni Bazaar to Jomsom. From here we proceed east and north to cross the high and very difficult Mesokanto Pass at an altitude of 5300m. At the top of the pass we managed to locate some marine fossils (shells) which testify to the fact that the Himalayas was once beneath the sea. We choose the first idea as this allows enough time for acclimatization and less difficulties for taking all the logistics. The views on the routes are breath taking; anything that can surpass your imagination. What you see is Tilicho Peak and the azure and peaceful Tilicho Lake below. It is a glacial lake and unfriendly to marine life. People say they often find marine fossils (shells) that probably support the fact that the Himalayas were once beneath the sea.

  53. josfitz says:

    Some of the photos are very good; many do not capture the essence of the landmark. Also, the titling needs work, for example, “The Chinese Wall in China”, I believe everyone knows and refers to it as The Great Wall. Errors of the types above detract.

    ( 2 years and 476 days ago )
  54. josfitz says:

    SCOTT SAID: “fab photos… one thing, horse shoe falls ( Niagara falls ) are entirely in Canada… the US falls are taken from a different angle… and not in the photo…”

    Scott, if I may, your comment is not quite accurate. The international boundary places all of what is commonly referred to as the American Falls and one half of the Horseshoe Falls commonly referred to as the Canadian Falls within the United States. The boundary divides the Horseshoe Falls exactly in the middle.

    Scott’s mistake is a common enough one. That said the best view of the Falls by far is from the Canadian side and that is where we always stay when we visit the Falls. A stupid Yank.

    ( 2 years and 476 days ago )
  55. josfitz says:

    Oops, with all due respect Scott may have been more right than I. After doing a little research, not at all scientific, it looks to me as though almost all of the Horseshoe Falls is within Canada, with perhaps one fifth in the US.

    Apologies to Scott. Still without question is the beauty of the Niagara Falls Park on the Canadian side and of course the views from there are the best.

    A stupid Yank

    ( 2 years and 475 days ago )
  56. Scott says:

    Not to beat a dead horse Josfitz, but there are two distinctly different ” Niagara Falls” The Horseshoe falls, entirely in Canada, and the American falls in New York… The two are separated by a chunk of land and the photo contained on this sight is a shot of the Horseshoe falls, Canada, not one fifth in the US… If you google image it, you will see what I mean…. try……….” aerial shots Niagara Falls”

  63. CARSON44 says:

    Scott,
    I’m going to respectfully disagree with you and site Google earth’s depiction of the U.S.border. If the measuring tool is used it shows Horseshoe falls 680 feet in the U.S.A./New York and 1270 feet in Canada/Ontario. Josfitz is correct in that the Canadian side has a much better view and they have developed their side much better because of the view. I live about 5 hours drive from the falls and have been there many times but never tire of the view. Awsome is a much overused word nowadays but accurate when used to describe this special place. Many thanks to Hilleke for putting this site together.

    I never meant to insult anyone by not including their favourite landmark… I don’t know every landmark on the face of this earth, I tried to post landmarks from different continents, and from different religions.
    I am sorry posting the photo of Auschwitz hurt some people. My grandfather died there, I visited that place and to me it’s a very important landmark. It all depends on how you look at things…
    What I did fail to do, is double-check some of the sources. I take full responsibility for any mistakes I made.
    You can have a look at part two, maybe you’ll find your favourite landmark there.

    Yay! Two landmarks from beautiful South Africa!

    To all the haters:
    The lovely lady who compiled the list is from Belgium. Maybe “The Chinese Wall” is a direct translation form how they say it in Flemish. (It is if translated from Afrikaans so I’m guessing)
    Not everyone calls it “The Great Wall of China”, you know, Geez.

    So to Jessica who said:
    “The Chinese Wall? Really? Mistakes on lesser known landmarks I can understand but just about any 5 year old out there knows that the Great Wall of China is called the Great Wall. The Chinese Wall. Please fix that.”

    Every AMERICAN 5 year old maybe… so really, there is nothing to fix except your narrow-mindedness.

    If you all have a problem with such trivial errors, go make your own lists! You can include exact latitude and longitudinal coordinates if you are really that picky. And you can include all of the “right” landmarks, because obviously these incredible ones are simply not suitable. For God’s sake, leave the woman alone.

    Hi hilleke. Great pictures, great list! About Inukshuk in Canada:

    “Inukshuk” is not a single landmark. There is no place in Canada called “Inukshuk”. There are many inuksuit (plural for inuksuk) in many different places in Canada. They are “landmarks”, but there is no single landmark called “Inukshuk”, and not one of them would qualify to be on this list on it’s own.

    See the wikipedia entry for it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inuksuk .

    Newgrange in Co. Meath in Ireland is 1500 years older than Stonehenge and 500 years older than the pyramids in Egypt and far more interesting and significant than both, the way it was built, the incredible intelligence and talent taken to build it, there are hundreds of stone circles just as amazing as stone henge all around Ireland, but the passage tomb at Newgrange is something else altogether, it was meticulously made around 3000 BC and the Stone Age people had to study the moon and stars, The 500 pound rocks were transported from about a 100 miles away with nothing more than hands, the roof is made by corbelling and 5000 years later not a drop of water has got inside, it is amazing, they were incredible architects, builders, geologists, astronomers etc. Newgrange is a truly remarkable site which deserves to be the top of this list.

There are just too many phenomenally beautiful places in this world to include them all in one simple article. This is a great basis for someone to begin their travels.
    And for the person who complained about Mount Rushmore being on the list, it should be. Its construction was just amazing, and it represents the first 150 years of American history. This is a list of landmarks. Mount Rushmore was built to attract tourists to South Dakota, and since it brings in over two million visitors every year, I would definitely call it a landmark.

    I agree with you Mgarrom. There are doers and there are bitchers, if you don’t like all the work this woman put into her site, and all personal work is selective and relative to that person’s impressions… then you go and take pictures and build your own site. I welcome the opportunity to view these and go ‘oh, yeah. I forgot about this place’ or ‘oh yeah! love to explore that place!’ Thanks, love the concept of how important ‘landmarks’ were to our early history and still is to explorers.

    To everyone. Please, take it easy. Hilleke is just sharing some nice pictures with the rest of us. That is a nice thing to do, not?
    By the way. “Manneke Pis” in Brussels is not realy worth a visit, but is a well know statue in Belgium. So… just let it go en enjoy! Please?!

    Wow people are pathetic. There is a such thing as being overly cultured, its called being haughty. Take your haughty asses to a best buy, get a DSLR, jump on some planes, and take your own damn pictures. If you have the time to sit in a dark room all day staring at a computer screen and pissing on somebody’s art then I feel sorry for you. This is an amazing collection of photos and she could have left out the names so you self proclaimed critics couldn’t have just googled them all just to tell someone they made mistakes. Get away from the computer screens and get a life. I have been to at least 5 of these locations and many others not featured. How many of you “experts” have been to ONE? Shutup or putup.

    Hagia Sophia in Istanbul has been a museum since 1935. It was converted into a mosque by
    the Ottoman Empire when they conquered the city in 1453. Before that , the Hagia Sophia had been a church in the Byzantine Empire, first built in 360 AD and destroyed and built again many times over the centuries.

I’m Mexican, I have never been to Chichen Itza but I think that the great pyramids of Mexico are in fact the pyramids of the Sun and the Moon in Theotihuacan, it’s such an amazing place! and the Sun pyramid is enormous. Another important landmark is el Tajin. It would have been cool that you added Kolnerdom in the list as it is one of the most incredible cathedrals I have ever seen. Congratulations for your photos and trips!

    You have allowed me to finally travel the way I’ve always wanted to – but in my case, “money” is an object that can only be cured by the winning the lottery! I have a lot of life left in me but I’m running out of years and health. You’ve made it possible for me to “visit” so many places and I intend to print and frame some of them so I may look at them whenever I please. Your talent, as well as your willingness to share tells us that you have a heart as great as your gift for true photography. I was really surprised at the”nasties” that had the stupidity to share their true self using ugly words to “try” to prove how more superior they were to you . . . . with their type of comments, I’m surprised they even bothered to look at the magnificent photos. A coloring book would be more to their style – that is, until they finally grow up! Now I must go to the next “50″ and enjoy more of GOD’s world. Thank you. . thank you . . thank you.

    -Even if it’s not standing anymore, the Berlin Wall
