Angkor Wat, no wonder?!

Angkor Wat was not deemed one of the so-called New Seven Wonders of the World, after

results of the competition were announced July 7. The winners, decided by an internet

vote, were The Great Wall of China, Jordan's ancient city of Petra, the statue of

Christ in Rio de Janerio, India's Taj Mahal, the Colosseum in Rome, the Mayan ruins

of Chichen Itza in Mexico and Peru's Machu Picchu. But critics have called the competition

an unprofessional popularity contest. CPP lawmaker Cheam Yeap said the results were

an injustice. "This type of competition discourages Cambodians and destroys

our ancestors' achievements," he told local media.
