Taj Mahal on course to be named a New 7 Wonder of the World.

Aishwarya Rai to announce its nomination at the Taj Mahal on December 1st. 

Search for the New 7 Wonders of the World to culminate with a live, global telecast on January 1, 2006. 

17 million votes have already been cast at www.new7wonders.com. The Taj Mahal, the Great Wall of China, the Coliseum in Rome and France’s Versailles Palace are among the leading sites, chosen from 27 existing nominees. Other candidates include …(to be tailored to each individual international media to attract their national interest). 

This new accolade for the Taj Mahal comes amid celebrations for its 350th anniversary. The guardians of India’s greatest treasure; Uttar Pradesh State Government have warmly welcomed the presence of Indian movie queen, Aishwarya Rai, at the event in Agra on December 1st.

“ …………..” said the Joint Director of Tourism for Agra, Mr D K Burman. 

Aishwarya Rai’s next releases include “Raincoat” on Dec 3rd, “Shabd” and “Bride and Prejudice” on February 11, 2005 in the United States. She is soon to star in the forthcoming IMAX film entitled, “Taj Mahal”, playing the Mughal queen, Arjumand, in this unforgettable love story. Taj Mahal IMAX is scheduled for release in 2006 in up to 400 theatres worldwide and is expected to run for as long as 15 years. 

Contrary to popular belief the Taj Mahal is not one of the original Seven Wonders. They were named in 200 BC and only the Egyptian Pyramids remain in existence. 

N7W Founder, Bernard Weber, believes the time has come for new Wonders to be selected, this time by global popular vote, on the internet: “Anyone can nominate any building between now and next February. Then, an internationally renowned panel will shortlist 21 candidates to go forward to the final vote on New Year’s Day 2006.” 

The N7W hot air balloon will fly over the Taj Mahal on December 1st, giving the celebrities, guests and invited media a rare opportunity to view the white marble mausoleum from the air. As its birthday present, N7W will be sponsoring a programme of tourist balloon flights at the Taj Mahal this winter. 

For more information, and accreditation, please contact Sarah Yuen, Event Manager, Email: sy@n7w.com Tel: 00 33 6 84 24 49 75 (Please note: limited media balloon flights will be allocated on request, in the order in which they are received).
