THE GREAT, GREAT WALL OF THE WORLD


The Great Wall of China is the greatest man-made wonder of the world. Hence, it is  befitting to call it The Great, Great Wall of the world.

It was during the reign of Emperor Shih Huang Ti that the wall began its construction. Since then it has provided inspiration to billions of the people  in China and elsewhere to achieve greater heights in life be it in business, science, education and other aspects of human endeavour.

It is perhaps the most photographed subject in the world.
