The city wall of Xian is one of the oldest surviving city walls in China, dating back to its original construction in 194 BCE. Its current incarnation was built by the Ming Dynasty in 1370, measuring 13.7 kilometers long, compared to the original wall's length of 25.7 kilometers; however, the newer wall is much thicker than the original wall.
