To supplement the God-given wonders,men built wondrous monuments,temples,palaces,and other structural masterpieces which have survived the ravenges of time.


The Great Wall of China is the most colossal edifice ever fashioned by human hands. It was built by Emperor Shih Huang Ti as a defensive rampart against the marauding Tartars.It is also the world's largest cemetery,because thousands of workers died during its construction and were buried in the wall.


The Ifugao rice terraces of the Philippines.Built on the slopes of towering mountains of Northern Luzon by bare human hands, these terraces escalate like colossal stairways into the clouds.


The Borobodur in Java,a massive masterpiece of Indonesia's Buddhist architecture.
This pyramid-like structure is built on and around a natural hill. Construction was started sometime around the beginning of the 8th century. In plan, it resembles a tantric mandala with six square terraces supporting three circular ones. Its been called a three dimensional rendering of the Buddhist conception of the cosmos. The square terraces are covered with carved relief's that can be read as an "instruction manual" for attaining enlightenment.

No one lives in those islands. Rich people buy some houses as an investment or just one of their vacation houses.
