Great Wall of China, Mutianyu

    Newer Older

    The Great Wall of China is a series of stone and earthen fortifications in China, built, rebuilt, and maintained between the 5th century BC and the 16th century to protect the northern borders of the Chinese Empire during the rule of successive dynasties.

    First built in the mid-6th century during the Northern Qi, Mutianyu Great Wall is older than the Badaling section of the Great Wall. As one of the best-preserved parts of the Great Wall, Mutianyu section of Great Wall used to serve as the northern barrier defending the capital and the imperial tombs. (Wikipedia)

      Very good, this colour tone perfectly matches an ancient building like this. It's a really nice view.

      I like the photo. I don't like the History on how the wall was made. I think it's sad what happened to all the people who built it.
