The Great Wall of China is one of the 7 wonders of the ancient world. Built between the 5th century BC and the 16th century. Its main purpose is to protect the Chinese from invaders coming from the north, like the Mongolians and the Manchurians. The popular belief that the Great Wall is the only man-made object that can be seen in space is not quite true. One cannot see the Great wall without the use of an aid such as telescope or binoculars from space.

Hi zhouxi, I know very little. Just learnt something from Allen here. :) But the good thing is this wall is identifiable from space. Something we cant say of most famous structures. :) Happy New Year. :)
