Now Indians are not required to spend money on travelling abroad to see the Seven Wonders of the World. The new 'Waste to Wonder' Park had opened recently in Delhi which will now let everyone experience the Seven Wonders of the World in the most amazing way.
Knowing that Industrial waste is causing enough damage to the environment for the past many years in Delhi, this idea came to existence and South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) decided to put that waste to some great use. They have converted them into the replicas of the Seven Wonders of the World.
Recalling the idea, Dr Punnet Goel, Commissioner, SDMC, says: “Initially we thought of constructing replicas using bricks but then we thought why not use scrap material just like we did to build 30 sculptures like Qutub Minar, Lotus Temple as part of ‘Waste to art’ programme and installed in various parts of Delhi like T3, Dwarka. One thing led to another and gave shape to this park”.
Spread over 7acres of land, The Park has replicas of Taj Mahal, Great Pyramid of Giza, Eiffel Tower of Paris, Leaning Tower of Pisa, Christ the Redeemer Statue of Rio De Janeiro, Amphitheatre Colosseum from Rome and the Statue of Liberty.
The structures are built 150 tons of scrap collected by The South Delhi Municipal Corporation. The waste includes automobile parts, rods, iron sheets, fans, bicycle, nut-bolts and bike parts, along with industrial waste.
As many as five artists, seven supporting artists and 70 welders and helpers were involved in making this a reality.
