New Delhi: With the help of South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC), the capital’s waste has turned into wonders in a unique waste-to-art park constructed in New Delhi. The park will open its gates on 21 February at 6 pm after its inauguration by home minister Rajnath Singh and Delhi Lt. Governor Anil Baijal.

The Wonders of World park at Rajiv Gandhi Smriti Van is spread across 6 acre of land and is located near the Sarai Kale Khan bus terminus.

This park has replicas of all seven wonders from across the globe, including The Taj Mahal, The Eiffel Tower, The Leaning Tower of Pisa, The Great Pyramid of Giza, Rome’s Colosseum,  Christ The Redeemer of Rio de Janeiro and The Statue of Liberty.
