Great Wall – Symbolizes Thousands of Years of Splendid Culture
The Great Wall, also known as the Great Wall of China, is an ancient Chinese military defensive project. It is a tall, sturdy, continuous and long-lasting moat that restricts the enemy from riding. The Great Wall is not a merely isolated city wall, but a defense system that combines city walls, barriers, kiosks, and landmarks with the city walls as the main body.
On March 4, 1961, the Great Wall was announced by the Council of China as the first batch of national key cultural relics protection units. In December 1987, the Great Wall was included in the World Cultural Heritage.
The Great Wall is an ancient defense project with the longest time and largest amount of construction in China and the world. Since the beginning of the Western Zhou Dynasty, the Great Wall has continued to build for more than 2,000 years. It is spread over vast lands in northern and central China and has a total length of more than 50,000. km.
The Great Wall of China is one of the New Seven Wonders. In December 1987, the Great Wall was listed as a World Cultural Heritage. The Great Wall intersects from east to west and north to south, stretching over the vast land of our great motherland. In addition to the “outside” Great Wall, the Ming Dynasty also built the “inside” Great Wall and the “internal three barriers” Great Wall. The Great Wall was built in the Spring and Autumn and Warring States Period more than 2,000 years ago. The existing remains of the Great Wall are mainly the Great Wall of the Ming Dynasty built in the 14th century. According to the data released by the State Administration of Cultural Heritage in 2012, the total length of the Great Wall has been 21,196.18 kilometers; and the State Administration of Cultural Heritage had published the Ming Great Wall survey data in 2009. The total length of the Ming Great Wall of China is 8851.8 kilometers. The Great Wall is a great miracle created by the working people in ancient China and a witness to China’s long history.
The Great Wall is a miracle created by the working people in ancient China. Since the Qin Dynasty, building the Great Wall has been a major project. According to records, Qin Shi Huang used nearly a million laborers to build the Great Wall, which accounts for 1/20 of the country’s population. At that time, there was no machinery, and all labor had to rely on manpower, and the working environment was also the mountains and cliffs. It can be imagined that without a large number of people working hard, it is impossible to complete this huge project.
The Chinese people and government have regarded the Great Wall of China, which symbolizes thousands of years of splendid culture, as a symbol of the Chinese nation. This symbolism has also been recognized and accepted by the world. In the two-way historical evolution in which the military’s practical functions gradually faded and the role of the cultural spirit continues to increase, the Great Wall has become increasingly apparent in its aesthetic charm. On the one hand, it continuously displays the wisdom and creativity of the Chinese nation to the world, and on the other hand, it also demonstrates the strength of humanity. Will and majestic spirit. The Great Wall is not only a symbol of the Chinese nation, but also a symbol of human civilization and a symbol of Earth peace. All humankind will benefit from this precious cultural heritage.
