This video was also discussed two years starting from this post: viewtopic.php?f=27&t=1905&start=20#p145734

Here is their complete list:

1. Maha Bodhi Temple
2. Boudinath Temple in Katmandhu
3. The Temple Of The Tooth in Kandy
4. Wat Pho in Bangkok
5. Angkor Wat
6. Po Lin Monastery / Big Buddha statue, Hong Kong
7. Hsi Lai Temple in Los Angeles

Their list is very similar to mine. My list was more Theravada oriented whereas this one is for Buddhism in general. Opinions vary for what should be on the list, but you gotta have Maha Bodhi Temple and virtually every list I have seen places that at the #1 position.
