10. The City Of Thonis
Thonis was once a marvelous city in ancient Egypt that was near Alexandria and dates back to the 12th century BCE. Thonis was considered Egypt’s main port as well as one of the most important port cities in the world. This is what made Thonis thrive and their watery canals crisscrossed the important city, however, the city would eventually sink into the ocean and be lost for centuries until back in 2000 when the ruins were discovered.

9. The Ancient Taoist Temple
The 680-year old temple was located in Beijing where it stood as an important piece of Chinese culture for many years. But when it was announced that Beijing would be the host city for the 2008 Olympics, the Chinese government decided to do some renovations for a new stadium. So apparently they thought it was a good idea to tear down the most significant historical site in the entire country and build something that would only be used a handful of times.

8. Wittenoom, Australia
This asbestos mining town was once home to around 20,000 people in its prime. That all changed when the town finally found out the health-risks that asbestos caused and shut down when about 1,000 of the city’s residents died of illnesses caused by asbestos. The ghost town has only 8 residents left and you can even see the blue asbestos that litters the ground.

7. The City Of Chan Chan
The large city of Chan Chan located in Peru was the largest city in pre-Columbian America. The construction of the city was carried out by the Chimu ner 850 AD and they used adobe brick to create the city and its structures were finished with mud. It’s estimated that around 30,000 people lived here. The city lasted for quite some time until it was conquered in 1470 AD by the Inca Empire.

6. The City Of Persepolis
Persepolis was once the center and capital of the great Persian Empire. It was a stunning city, decorated with lavish works of art, though most of it didn’t survive. In the year 331 BC, Alexander the Great apparently burned down the city as a form of revenge against the Persian Empire for burning down the Acropolis in Athens. An eye for an eye I guess.

5. The City of Carthage
This city couldn’t catch a break…located in what’s now modern-day Tunisia, Carthage was built by Phoenician colonists and would later become a prominent source of power in the Mediterranean area. This resulted in a rivalry with not just Syracuse, but Rome as well and was accompanied by quite a few wars. The first time this city was destroyed was in the year 146 BC by the Romans. It was later reconstructed and then destroyed again by the Muslim conquest in 698 AD.

4. The City Of Troy
This city was the setting for one of the most famous battles, the Trojan War, that was recorded in Homer’s poem “The Iliad”, but was thought to be believed as nothing more than a myth. That is, until, the real remnants of the city were discovered in what is now modern-day Turkey. The site was dated all the way back to the mid- to late- 13th century.

3. The Mesa Verde
Mesa Verde is located in southwestern Colorado and is the site of the popular cliff dwellings of the Anasazi people. During the 12th century, the Anasazi began to build their houses in the shallow caves and under the rock overhangs that run along the canyon walls. A few of these houses were as huge as 150 rooms. It wasn’t until 1300, that all of the Anasazi people had left the area, but the ruins remain almost perfectly intact. No one knows why they suddenly up and left.

2. The City Of Leptis Magna
Leptis Magna was an important city of the Roman Empire and is located in modern day Libya. Born in the city of Leptis, the Roman emperor Septimius Severus became a great patron of the city. During the course of the following centuries, the city began to go down hill and was eventually conquered by the Arabs in 642. The city was then destroyed and buried under tons of sand for years.

1.The Original City Of Pompeii
This wasn’t just a movie starring Game of Thrones’s Kit Harrington that I refused to go Pom-pay for and watch. This was once a great city where civilization was thriving until that one fateful day. On the morning of August 24, Mt. Vesuvius began its process of eruption and clouded the entire city of Pompeii, along with the nearby city of Herculaneum, in volcanic ash and pumice. This was probably, if not, the most devastating volcanic eruption in the entirety of human history. It’s believed that around 16,000 people lost their lives and were buried alive in the gruesome event.
