The world is constantly evolving over the time. We see how the cities are growing and developing over time. Within a span of few years the buildings get replaced by the huge skyscrapers or the gigantic malls.

Some cities have seen lots of development due to economic growth and hence become a magnet for the people. This results in the growth of these cities. As the money pours in and the population grows, often newer, more elegant and taller skyscrapers are built to solve the problems of population growth and rising costs of land. Often these cities develop so quickly that they loose their traditional way of life. Here, we explain that how some of the most famous cities of the world have drastically changed in just a few decades.  Here is the time-lapse photos of the evolution of the greatest cities in the world.
