One of the must visit tourist spot in this world is The Great Wall of China. It is one of the wonders of the world.
The Great Wall of China is mainly located in the Northern China. It is made up of millions and millions of brick and is also known as, one of the longest man- made structure in the world. It is one of the greatest and longest architecture of the world.
The Great Wall of China was built by Qin Shi Huang, who was also the first emperor of China. He was also the founder of Qin dynasty, the first dynasty of imperial China. Qin Shi Huang was also known as Shihuangndi.
The Great Wall of China was a huge construction which took a period of over 200 years to be completed. The reason behind constructing this wall was to protect China from intruders. Many workers worked very hard to make this wall and it took tons of money to construct it.
It is believed that about hundreds of thousands of people died during the construction of The Great Wall of China and many of them were buried within the wall. The Great Wall of China, frequently billed as the only man-made object visible from space, generally isn’t, at least to the unaided eye in low Earth orbit. It certainly isn’t visible from the Moon, as confirmed by NASA.
The Great Wall of China is over 2000 years old but still is a very famous tourist place and gets lots of tourist every year. The Great Wall of China also became an UNESCO world heritage in December 1987.
I would recommend everyone to visit The Great Wall of China after this Covid situation as it is one of the best places to visit. A famous quote on The Great Wall of China is that “Enemy at the gates! – soldiers below the Great Wall.”
