It's up to 5% now, but I'm still astounded by how low that figure is. I guess it probably helps that I've been there, but I had thought that it was a well known site.

Still rididculously low (especially looking at the other stats, it is not like people did bad on this quiz overal) was really surprised. And I wonder how much of that rise all the way up to 15 was due to this comment thread

Isnt it like one of the first mayor landmarks/ building you learn about? you got the pyramids+sphinx, the colosseum and this.. (plus the confusingly similar looking and written parthenon) (and later on the eiffel tower and maybe a brief mention of some other of the 7 wonders of the world)

I missed Forbidden City. I said Forbidden Temple, that was just a total guess - I didn't think I was actually close with that. Kicking myself for missing Notre Dame. I've been there, but obviously I was at the front, so the angle threw me off.

C'mon all you "That ain't 'Big Ben'" complainers! You know that it is the preferred answer even if technically not accurate. I'm sure you regularly relish in correcting everyone who makes this world changing mistake just so you can prove how superior you are.

Sep 15, 2016
It's not about being superior, it's about being correct. Many of the people who visit this site I'd imagine are sticklers for being precise, and it really is a big deal. Call it incurable pedantry or a form of autism; if you don't have it, you probably wouldn't understand

Not to mention those that think the status of Palestine, Cyprus, Taiwan and Crimea on these quizzes is part of the Quizmaster’s dastardly treaties he makes with sinister world leaders, funded by George Soros, while he cackles inside his hollowed out volcano. Only the latter part of which is remotely true.

Sigh. There were a lot where I knew the city but not the name of the monument. "That square in the middle of the Vatican" and "The cathedral adjacent to the Kremlin in Moscow" didn't quite cut it.

how bout "Canadian national tower"?

Level 77
Sep 16, 2015
Why do I keep thinking it's called the CNN tower? Sorry everybody in Canada/Toronto. Thought I had the wrong tower when that wasn't accepted. Accept just "CN" ? No word really starts with that and if you get it right that far you already know it's a tower and which one it is.

Well, that reminds me of the time that the Atlanta Braves (owned by CNN's Ted Turner) played the Toronto Blue Jays in the World Series. When they played in Atlanta, the guy bringing out the Canadian flag carried it upside down. Possibly a diss reflecting Toronto's failure to name their tower properly.

Please accept Red Square for the last one, even though I got it. We associate the onion topped dome more with Red Square than St Basils Cathedral (even though they're less than 0.1 miles away from each other.)
+3
Level 77
Sep 1, 2016
But that dome is part of the cathedral, not the square. Also there's not one bit of square visible in the picture, but plenty of cathedral.

Level 75
Aug 27, 2018
Part of the answer is filled in, and even though I've never been there I don't think there is a Red Square Cathedral.

loved this quiz. Have the opportunity to visit 7 of these locations, and here's to more fun travel in the future.

Angkor Watt, Forbidden City, Lourve, Acropolis, St Peters square, Sears/Willis Tower, and the space needle.

I've now been to 13 of these. I'll visit the Vatican in the Spring making 14. I would like to visit mainland China sometime and I love SE Asia so I'll probably get to Cambodia sooner or later... not sure if I'll ever be in the middle of the Australian Outback, though.

Pantheon shows 0% / me 100% but at least two people have it right, if I read the comments right. Not sure how it is calculated but it does feel impressive
+1
Level 78
Jun 5, 2018
Yes. Well I'm perversely happy to be among that 1% whilst also among the 48% who didn't know Lincoln Memorial. 17/18 for me.

Level 82
Aug 30, 2018
The Pantheon shows up as being guessed right 10% of the time for me. Maybe it somehow glitched and was reset to 0 at some point. And I'm also happy to not be ignorant of Washington, which is a city worth visiting and knowing about.

Why won't you accept Ayres rock? That's what most older people still call it.

They do accept it - you just have to spell it correctly.

Sep 1, 2016
Darn it-couldn't spell Angkor Wat, tried CNN Tower and Dome on the Rock. So near and yet so far....

Level 70
Sep 4, 2016
How about accepting Al-Aqsa (Mosque) for the Dome? It's part of the same complex
+3
Level 82
Dec 13, 2016
Different thing. Though many people often confused about this. The raised platform is known as the Temple Mount. To Muslims it is the Haram Al-Sharif. But the Dome of the Rock is near the North end of it, while the Al Aqsa Mosque is all the way over on the South end. If you know the place you shouldn't get the two mixed up. If they would accept an alternate it should be Haram Al Sharif/Haram esh Sharif. Not AlAqsa... that's incorrect.
+1
Level 34

Shouldn't Vatican Square also be accepted? Love the quiz by the way. Also self slayyyyy!!! I beat 82.2% of y'all.

Aug 27, 2018
Came across at least two fairly common alternate spellings that are not accepted here: "sphynx" and "Agia Sophia." Please consider accepting them.

Level 70

Was the Pantheon just recently added in lieu of another landmark? JetPunk is rife with geography and history nerds. I don't believe that 96% of quiz takers on this site would get that one wrong.

i think the fact that the pantheon is in Paris confuses a lot of people, the "other" one, the parthenon, is in Athens
+1
Level 72
Dec 5, 2018
I know there is a building in Paris called the Pantheon, but it looks nothing like the building in the picture. It's square not round like the one pictured here. The round one in the picture which is also called the Pantheon is in Rome and is about 1800 years older than the one in Paris. I'm not sure how the Parthenon fits into the discussion about the Pantheon, but it is actually one of the buildings shown in the photo for the Acropolis in this quiz and you're right about it being in Athens.
+2
Level 69
Jun 20, 2019
What on earth has paris got to do with it? We have a restaurant here called Sphinx, but I wouldnt put that as the answer, since that is not shown in the picture.

And I still really dont get it, what does something by the same name in paris have to do with the picture. You see the picture you remember the name. And then go no that cant be the answer cause something else excists by that name? It is not like the countries are given either..

I am really confused about where the confusion would be according to your argument.

+3
Level 69
Nov 16, 2020
There definitely is *a* Pantheon in Paris - I should know, I live right by it - but in almost every way, if we were to speak about *the* Pantheon, it would be hard to deny that the one in Rome, being 1800 years older and more architecturally significant, takes precedence. Anyway, none of this is relevant to this quiz, but I did enjoy writing it, so there's that.

More than I know important buildings with authentic columns like this ... which is ... 2 .. parthenon and pantheon.. (wrote authentic columns, and important buildings, cause I am sure there are plenty of villas/mansion or something that have pillars on their porch)

The Hagia Sophia changes its name to the Blue Mosque

Level 66
Jun 15, 2020
Nope. The Blue Mosque (technically Sultan Ahmed Mosque) is next door to Hagia Sophia (which isn't a mosque).
+1
Level 68
Jan 31, 2022
Hagia Sophia is a mosque, church and a museum.
+1
Level 67
Dec 18, 2019
While I agree that it should be allowed for a type-in, Big Ben is not the official name of the building. It is called "Elizabeth Tower", with the bell inside being called the "Great Bell" with Big Ben being a nickname for a bell.

Also, Notre Dame picture needs to be updated.

The largest ruin on the Acropolis is named for a snake--the Phythonon.

Level 79
Aug 19, 2020
What snake is was it named after? I'm guessing the python.
+1
Level 69
Nov 16, 2020
Huh? Do you have a source for that? I'm pretty sure the biggest ruin on the Acropolis is the Parthenon, the name of which is derived from "παρθένος" (parthenos) in ancient Greek, which means young girl of virgin, a nickname of the goddess Athena. You can find the same root in "parthenogenesis", which is a form of asexual ("virgin") reproduction.
