The Great Wall Of China is located along the Moutains north of Bejing. The Great Wall was created around 233 b.c. No one actually knows who was the architect. But they do know Emperor Qin Shinvant, ordinary people, and slaves all helped build it.The reason it was built was because it was going to help protect from attacks. It was also going to prevent tribes from crossing the border. One bad thing about the construction of the Great Wall, was that 1 million people died from the construction. Therefore the construction of the Great Wall took a million people, but also killed millions. (Travel china guide)

The Great Wall of china is very big and beautiful. It makes it very popular and unique. But I'm not the only person who thinks so. A quote from Mao Zedong " He who has not climbed the Great Wall is not a true man." ( tripadvisor) Another quote this one is from Cnn news. " The Great Wall of China should be on everyone's bucket list." (CNN news). Lastly, " If you visit the Bejing it is mandatory to see the wall." ( tripadvisor) I guess people all over the world love the Great Wall.
