The Great Wall at the Jin Shan Mount section is framed by an arch on the outskirts of Beijing.

The Great Wall of China, now voted as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, is a collection of walls on the northern border of China. The construction of these walls began in the 7th century AD by the Qin dynasty which ruled China from 221 to 206 BC. Succeeding dynasties extended and re-built certain portions of the wall. Most of what remains of the Wall today was built by the Ming Dynasty which ruled China from 1368 to 1644.

Though the wall was mainly built for the security of the country, it also facilitated trade and commerce.
