Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Alhambra, Spain

The Alhambra is known as the "Red Fortress" due to the colour of the earth used to build it. Construction was started in the mid-13th century by Muhammad I Ibn al-Ahmar, the Emir of Granada. After the reconquest of the region by the Christian kingdoms in the late 15th century, the citadel housed the royal court of the Catholic monarchs, Ferdinand and Isabella. Today it is a UNESCO World Heritage site and a popular tourist attraction.
2. Marble Cathedral, Chile

The Capillas de Mármol or Marble Cathedral is located in Patagonia, Chile. This is a natural wonder that was formed over thousands of years. Found on the shores of the General Carrerra Lake, the marble deposits have been eroded by water, leaving a maze of tunnels underneath. The caves are accessible by boats or kayaks.
3. Opera House, Sydney

Sydney's Opera House is one of the most iconic landmarks of Australia. The structure is located at the edge of the water on Circular Quay. Its roof was designed to mimic the sails of the boat passing by in the harbour.
4. Bibi-Khanym Mosque, Samarkhand

When it was built in the 15th century, the Bibi-Khanym Mosque was considered the largest of its kind. Timur, the founder of the Timurid Empire, had established Samarkhand as the capital of his empire. He then ordered the construction of the mosque as part of his legacy. The mosque contains many features unique for its time which later influenced Islamic architecture across Central Asia.
5. Wat Rong Khun, Thailand

Wat Rong Khun is a Buddhist temple in the Chiang Rai province of Thailand. Based on its appearance, it is also known as the White Temple. The temple is relatively modern having been built recently in 1997. Despite the impression given by its appearance, the temple is not built of marble or porcelain. The white exterior is achieved through white plaster and glass.
6. Arches National Park, USA

Arches National Park is located in Utah in the United States. Unsurprisingly, it gets its name from the hundreds of natural arch formations found within the park. The arches are composed of sandstone rock giving them a bright red colour. The most famous of these is the Delicate Arch which stands at 16 metres tall.
7. Taj Mahal, India

Asia's first Nobel laureate, the Bengali poet Rabindranath Tagore, described the Taj Mahal as "a teardrop on the cheek of eternity". The Taj Mahal was built as a mausoleum by the Mughal king Shah Jahan for his wife Mumtaz who died during childbirth. The monument took over 20 years to be constructed and three centuries later, continues to mesmerize tourists and visitors.
8. Red Square, Moscow

The Red Square is located in Moscow's historic centre and is the city's oldest square. This UNESCO World Heritage site is home to many of the city's landmarks including Saint Basil's Cathedral and Lenin's mausoleum. It also lies across a moat from the Kremlin.
9. Chefchaouen, Morocco

Chefchaouen is located in the north-western part of Morocco. It is known as Morocco's "Blue City". In the 15th century, the city was populated by Jews and Muslims escaping from Spain. As a result, the local culture reflects some of their native Andalusian culture.

There are several theories to explain the city's blue houses, one of which indicates that the colour helped to keep mosquitoes away. Similar theories are given for India's blue city, Jodhpur, which also has the same type of climate.
10. Petra, Jordan

The ancient city of Petra is nicknamed the "Rose City" due to the pink colour of the sandstone rocks from which it is carved. English poet John Burgon called it "a rose-red city half as old as time". Petra was the capital city of the ancient Nabataeans with archaeological evidence indicating it may have been built as early as the 5th century BC.

The city was unknown to the Western world until the early 19th century when it was rediscovered by the Swiss explorer, Johann Ludwig Burckhardt.
11. Santorini, Greece

Santorini is a Greek island located in the Aegean Sea. It is the site of a large volcanic eruption which left behind a caldera, at the tip of the island. Santorini was named after Saint Irene. The island is famous for its white buildings with blue domes. According to some explanations, the houses were white-washed to provide some respite from the heat in the summer.
12. Pamukkale, Turkey

Pamukkale means 'cotton castle' in Turkish. It is located in the south-western part of the country. The terraces are made of a sedimentary rock called travertine. Travertine is commonly found near mineral springs. It is a type of limestone that is formed when the calcium carbonate rapidly precipitates due to the heat of the spring.
