The 1500-year-old wall of Gorgan is the second largest wall in the world after China.

The 1500-year-old wall of Gorgan is the second largest wall in the world after China. When the construction of the Great Wall of China was completed, it was 1000 years since the construction of the brick wall of Gorgan. Most of this wall has been destroyed and only small parts of it are buried under the ground. An American archaeologist who photographed Iranian antiquities with his private plane in 1315, sees a red wall in Gorgan and photographs it. These photographs later became documents for archaeologists’ research. Tens of millions of brick molds were used in the construction of this huge wall, and they found a large number of brick kilns at close distances to the wall. To provide water, they dug an aqueduct and built a 200-kilometer-long water canal. The construction of this wall took ninety years. The wall of Gorgan, in comparison with the series of walls of China, is a monument that was built with honor, and many innocent people and slaves were not killed in it!
