The watch towers of the Great Wall of China were built during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) and used bricks for the structures. This was the last part to be built. The construction of the wall started back in Qin Dynasty (221-207BC) when they used glutinous flour as binding agent for the stones.

"I would not like to live in a world without cathedrals. I need their beauty and grandeur. I need them against the vulgarity of the world. I want to look up at the illuminated church windows and let myself be blinded by the unearthly colors. I need their luster. I need it against the dirty color of the uniforms. I want to let myself be wrapped in the austere coolness of the churches. I need their imperious silence. I need it against the witless bellowing of the barracks yard and the witty chatter of the yes-man." – Pascal Mercier / Night Train to Lisbon .
