An awe-inspiring feat of defensive architecture, known as the largest man-made structure with the longest ancient series of wall and fortifications in the world.
The Great Wall of China is China’s powerful symbols. Named as one of the new Seven Wonders of the World, The Great Wall of China, is one of the world’s most visited attractions owing to its architectural grandeur and historical significance.
This UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a series of fortifications made of stone, brick, tamped earth, wood, and other materials, generally built along an east-to-west line across the historical northern borders of China to protect the Chinese states and empires against the raids and invasions of the various nomadic groups of the Eurasian Steppe.
Emperor Qin Shi Huang succeeded in having the walls built and joined together in 220-206 BCE, to fend off the invasions from the Huns in the north. Since then, the Wall has served as a monument of the Chinese nation throughout history.
Just like a gigantic dragon, this world wonder, stretches across North China from east to west for over 6,000 kilometers. The sites of the Great Wall stretch across 15 provinces of China and features many towers, and passes.
