      Kumbhalgarh: The Great Wall You Have Never Heard Of (and it is NOT in China)

        Again wrong thread ...

        What makes you believe we have never heard about it?

        But this is just a circular city wall or fortress, nothing related to a Great Wall.


        -chinoook
        chinoook's 1st law: Structurally weak walls tend to have double structures.
        chinoook's 2nd law: Newer walls are built next older walls, not over them.
        chinoook's 3rd law: Similar problems lead to similar solutions.

        The most dangerous worldview is the worldview of people, who have not viewed the world. (Alexander von Humboldt (1769-1859), German naturalist and explorer)
