With barely 3 weeks left until the voting ends, Lebanese President Michel Sleiman paid a visit to Jeita Grotto today in an attempt to encourage Lebanese to vote more and make out of this beautiful grotto one of the new 7 wonders of the world.


Suleiman said: “God gave us this gift and I urge the people to preserve the environment.”


He called on them to vote heavily for the grotto, saying that the national campaign needs the support of the media and Lebanese living outside the country.

The president was given the key to the town of Jeita by Baroud and toured the cave with the PM and the accompanying delegation.


Jeita Grotto has emergent victorious in the preliminary rounds of the New7Wonders competition and has a chance of becoming one of the new seven wonders of the world on November 11. The cave is a compound of crystallized caves located 20 km north of Beirut in the valley of Nahr al-Kalb.
