The Great Wall
The Great Wall, which is in Beijing, capital of China, was regarded as a wonder of China with a history of more than 2,000years. From a bird's-eye view, it is just like a dragon winding itself from west to east, stretching for approximately 6,700 kilometers. Since the Spring and Autumn Period and the Warring States Period, the walls had been put up to defend the borders by the kingdoms. After the founding of Qin Dynasty, Qin Shihuang had all the walls joined together to make "The Great Wall". While most of the walls were ruined in wars, the majority of the Great Wall we see today was mainly built during Ming Dynasty. 
The Great Wall has been built for a long time, with great engineering quantity, arduous construction and rich historical and cultural connotation. It is indeed difficult to compare with other ancient projects in the world."The Great Wall of China is the most famous engineer in China,
There is no such thing as a great project. The Great Wall is the only wonder of the world." sun yat-sen, one of China's great pioneers of modern democracy, commented on the Great Wall. After visiting the Great Wall, former President Richard Nixon said, "only a great nation can build such a Great Wall."
The Great Wall, originally built to resist the invasion from the North, now has become a well-known place of interest, attracting tourists from all over the world. As a saying goes,"He who has never been to the Great Wall is not a true man", which is evidence of its grandeur. The Great Wall was added to the world heritage list in 1987. Arguably, the Great Wall is a marvel of human history.
