The great wall of china is the lonest defense wall in the world
and it has a history of more than 2000years.
visiting the great wall is inevitable (that is sure to happen) for visitors from both

The base of the wall was made of granite and lump of soil and
the top was paved with square bricks.
THe great wall averages 1.8 meters in height and is 6.5M wide
at the base and 5.7M at the top,The width isenough for 5 horses
to go side by side.
On both sides of the road there are dwarf (short) walls called "PARAPET WALL".
Everyothere 300to 500M there are fortresses(small tower) ,in ancient time,soldiers
made smoke in daytime and fire at night if they found the enemies.
The wall is an ancient masterpiece that you can fully enjoy.

2.PARTHENON IN Greece

the patron goddess of the ancient city of Athens.

3.EIFFEL TOWER IN FRANCE

It created centre of paris in 1889, in commemoration (celebration) of the
centenary (period of 100 y)of the french revolution.
The tower that has become symbolic of paris ,the world over weighs 10100 tonnes
and contains 18000 pieces of iron ,help together by 2500000 rivets.
