Or at least with significant ruins remaining...by 'ancient' I'm talking before 400 AD, e.g. the Roman era and before. Would be cool if I could find buildings all over the world before this period. Does anyone know of such a list exist? We know of the famous ones like the Parthenon or Pyramids, but what about the lesser known ones?

I also wonder which country has the most...I was disappointed by the lack of really ancient buildings in China (many were from say 1400). I think India has a lot, actually.

My guess is Greece, Turkey, Egypt, Italy would be the top four, not sure about after that.
