City Wall, Nanjing: 5 reviews and 12 photos


City wall in Nanjing is highly recommended while visiting here. It is quite visible in many connecting areas which is between downtown and suburb. The large scale of construction started from Ming Dynasty(600 years ago). In the ancient time, city wall is built up for lining out the city, preventing the invasion of outsider which its function is similiar to the castles in European cities. Due to the historical reasons, many parts of the wall was tore down or was not well-preserved. However, the wall of Nanjing still maintain the record of the LONGEST CITY WALL IN THE WORLD.
