Monuments That Face Extinction

There are some wonders in the world which are famous and well known but there are places are endangered and are getting ruined due to lack of attention and care. Many of these places have had a glorious history associated but people are not aware of them

ALABAMA CIVIL RIGHTS SITES, UNITED STATES

Throughout Alabama, churches, meeting houses, and private residences tell the stories of the U.S. Civil Rights movement during the 1950s and 1960s. As the future funding of programs like the American Civil Rights Grant Program of the U.S. National Park remains uncertain and rapid urbanization encroaches, stakeholders must address increasing challenges in maintaining these historically significant sites.

TAKIYYAT OF AL-GULSHANI, EGYPT

Built by an influential shaykh in the 16th century, the Takiyyat of al-Gulshani is a Sufi religious foundation in Cairo that was established after the Ottoman conquest in 1517. The decaying complex houses a Mamluk-style mausoleum, mosque, kitchen, shops, and apartments—structures that are in need of repair after decades of earthquakes, looting, and neglect

SOUK OF ALEPPO, SYRIA

For centuries, Aleppo’s labyrinthine passageways and vaulted storefronts were bursting with vendors hawking sweets, carpets, spices, and Aleppo soap. In 2011, the outbreak of an ongoing civil war has not only resulted in the incomprehensible loss of life, suffering, and displacement, but disrupted the nation’s very social fabric. The souk—a hallmark of commerce as well as social exchange—went up in flames during a fight between Syrian government forces and insurgents in 2012. According to WMF, the rehabilitation of the souk is essential to post-conflict recovery efforts.

AMATRICE, ITALY

In August 2016, an early morning earthquake devastated a stretch of central Italy, including the town of Amatrice. Both the human toll and destruction of cultural heritage was staggering—nearly 300 people died, 400 were injured, and many historical buildings were destroyed.

BLACKPOOL PIERS, UNITED KINGDOM

Located on the Irish Sea coast of England, Blackpool is considered the world's first seaside resort town for the working class and has been a popular summer destination for Britons for more than a century. Sea-level rise and increasing extreme weather events, a consequence of global climate change, now threaten the coastal community. Despite the recent construction of a new sea wall to protect the town from flooding, the piers remain vulnerable.

BUFFALO CENTRAL TERMINAL, NEW YORK

Constructed in 1929, the Art Deco Buffalo Central Terminal streamlined the city’s transportation system in style. With the construction of the highway system beginning in the 1950s, however, train travel steadily declined and the station was closed by 1979. The building was later purchased by the Central Terminal Restoration Corporation, a volunteer-led group that is seeking to redevelop the site and revitalize the Buffalo community.

CERRO DE ORO, PERU

South of Lima, a sweeping network of adobe buildings and temples, burial mounds, and textiles dating back to 550 to 850 BCE marks the archaeological site of Cerro de Oro. Although it was designated a Monumental Archaeological Zone by the Peruvian Ministry of Culture in 2006, it has suffered the effects of looting, neglect, and illegal encroachment.

CHAO PHRAYA RIVER, THAILAND

Flowing through Bangkok and into the Gulf of Thailand, the Chao Phraya River—also known as the River of Kings—is currently under threat from the proposed construction of an elevated promenade along the river. In addition to aesthetically altering the landscape, the project would displace riverfront communities and could cause unforeseen environmental impacts like increased flooding. Despite opposition from local communities and businesses, there are no plans to halt construction.
