Of the original Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, only one wonder still exists today: the crumbling, gorgeous Great Pyramids of Giza. But there are plenty of other ancient structures that deserve our attention too, from a 2,000-year-old church to a more than 1,000-year-old Buddhist temple that's made out of timber. Even more remarkable? All of these building are still in use. 

Things that last thousands of years are full of awesome sauce.

Until we put that in the context of a universe that's been around for billions of years.

Still, these must be awesome -- and awe inspiring! -- to visit.
