Taj Mahal, India's most famous architectural wonder, has joined the race to be named one of the 'New Seven Wonders of the World'.

"Taj Mahal symbolises India. It is a beautiful monument representing love and passion. That is why it has been included in the list of 21 finalists across the world," Bernard Weber, founder of a Switzerland-based firm New7Wonders, which is behind the contest, said recently.

"The New Seven Wonders of the World will be chosen on the number of votes received around the globe -- people of India, let your voices be heard in this global vote," Weber added.

The results of this contest will be announced on July 7, 2007, when at an event in Lisbon in Portugal, the world will discover which monuments have been named as the new wonders. Votes can be submitted till July 6.
