The Great Wall of China: Amongst the Wonders of the World

Ever been to the Great Wall of China? Among the greatest wonders in the world, the Great Wall of China is a major tourist site. Being the longest wall in the world of about 6,000 kilometers, it is an inspiring example of ancient defense architecture. Most of the popular tourist sections of the wall are located around Beijing. The winding path of the wall over the steep mountains of the rugged country is blessed with some great scenery. Every season has its own beautiful scenery. Although Beijing has a colder climate and more rainfall, tourists can visit this amazing place in any time of the year to enjoy its beauty. The Great Wall of China is made of several sections, leading through eight North Chinese provinces. Today, a few of the sections of the Great Wall are known as greatest tourist sites. However the wall is well preserved in the other parts.

The Great Wall of China is mainly built to protect the great Chinese Empire from the invaders of the north. It is not just an ordinary wall. The wall is built with several forts, beacon towers and passes to shelter auxiliary soldiers, store weapons and grains, and transfer military information.

The first few sections of the wall were built in the 7th Century BC when China was still a group of many small states. The construction continued until the rise of the Qing Dynasty in 1644. The construction of the Great Wall is placed among the longest durations in the history and greatest costs in lives, blood and sweat. The Wall has been called the Ten-Thousand-Li-Long Wall for centuries where one 'li' means half a kilometer. So 10,000 li is equivalent to 5,000 kilo meters. The Great Wall of China is one of the new 7 wonders of the world.
