1980 Badaling.jpg

Badaling is the first section to have undergone restoration within the Great Wall of China which is situated in suburban Beijing. With no exceptions all tourists who visit Beijing visit this place. The Great Wall of China is the only man-made object that can be seen from space. It spreads 2400 kilo meters up till Jiayu-pass in Gansu Province. When I stood on the Badaling, I felt the power of the ancestors who built this huge building and I also felt the history of empty wars of human beings.
