Some time ago, we asked TIA Daily readers to recommend places where one could "see" great human achievements. Following is the compilation of their recommendations. This is a work in progress--if you would like to add to the list, please e-mail editor@TIADaily.com--we will update the list periodically. We hope that this list adds a value to your travels. -- Shrikant Rangnekar
