Waste to Wonderland Park of New Delhi, India

Waste to Wonder Park in Sarai Kale Khan, New Delhi is likely the first theme park in the world to recreate the duplicates of all seven natural wonders using waste items. It's interesting to learn that Kota's Seven Wonders Park sparked the idea for Waste to Wonder Park when it was highlighted in the Bollywood film "Badrinath ki Dulhania’ and is now visited by runners and tourists. The South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) has used wind and solar energy to illuminate the park, creating a spectacular vision at sunset and at night. The park appears to be a small island created in the midst of the cramped environment of the Sarai Kale Khan Inter-State Bus Terminus and Outer Ring Road. It will lend support to the 'Swachh Bharat Abhiyan' and move the country closer to turning waste into wealth. It is a must-see for everyone interested to discover how even discarded trash can look so fantastic when assimilated. Plans are in the works to offer a 'light and sound' show, as well as the SDMC's plans to allow pre-wedding and film shoots at the Waste to Wonder Park. It took six months to set up this park with a whopping  150 tonnes of scrap with the support of a lot of artists and welders to create the magic of 7 wonders. 

Waste to Wonderland Park Tourist Attractions

We will take you through a virtual tour of all the seven wonders erected here:

1. Statue of Liberty - USA

The podium was made from old piles, metal railings, and edges that look like bricks, and the circular rings were made from car rims. The Roman liberty goddess holds a device carved from an MCD bench and metal sheets in her left hand. She holds a torch made of an old bike and its chain in her right hand. Her hair is made from cycle chains. Old bike parts, aluminum sheets, and chains were used to reconstruct the 35-foot Statue of Liberty which is originally located in the United States.

2. Christ The Redeemer - Brazil

The throne on which the statue of Christ stands is made from square pipes derived from benches. Electric poles have been placed vertically to make the lower portion of the statue’s dress. Chains from motorcycles have been put in use to create hair and engine parts are used to make hands. So in sum total, with the help of ancient automotive engines, square pipes, and electric poles, the Brazilian Christ The Redeemer has been recreated.

3. The Eiffel Tower-Paris

The Eiffel Tower is made up of 40 tonnes of automobile parts and stands at an altitude of 70 feet. The monument replica is made of wrought-iron lattice and auto component wastes such as trucks, clutch plates, C channels, and so on. The replica's three floors were built individually and compiled with the help of a crane.

4. The Taj Mahal - India 

For many years, The Taj Mahal, the pride of Indian heritage, has been the world's most popular tourist destination. The duplicate monument erected in this park is fairly incredible. There is a small fountain and a  brook to give you a feel of the River Yamuna, and it looks breathtaking at night. The Taj Mahal replica was built with 1600 cycle rings, electric pole pipes, old pans, park benches, swings, truck springs, sheets, and other materials. And the domes were built with two pipes, truck sheets for the intricate design, and benches for the window and door frames.

5. Pyramid of Giza - Egypt

The awe-inspiring original monument of the Great Pyramid of Giza is the oldest of the ancient world's seven wonders. Using 10,800 feet of scrap angles weighing 10-12 tonnes, a 110-layer structure was created.

6. Colosseum of Rome - Rome

It was, in fact, a gift to ancient Roman citizens. And the role model of the Colosseum is a gift to Indians for perpetuity. The arches are composed of 410 car wheels, and all of the captivating lighting comes from the stored solar energy.

7. Leaning Tower of Pisa - Italy

The original monument was built in the 12th century. The replica is made up of approximately 211 arches dispersed over eight stories that have been crafted from cycle rim, diamond designs in between the arches. These arches are made from metal sheets and pipes to give it the appearance of a pillar.

Park Highlights

Nearly 150 tonnes of scrap metal was used to create and construct the artworks in the park. 90 tonnes of the 150 tonnes were industrial waste and junk automobile parts.
