What do the padlocks on the Great Wall of China represent?
One interesting custom is that of lovers bringing a padlock - often engraved with their names - and locking the padlock to a chain provided for the purpose on the Great Wall, to symbolise the enduring nature of their love. Apparently it is not just the wall, but mountains too are favoured for this practice

The Great Wall of China is a UNESCO world heritage site and anarchitectural marvel. It is prominent enough to be seen from outerspace.
It is a dirty browny-greeny colour at the front and at the back it is dark brown and broken down. At the sides it is a whitish grey and is growing weeds and moss.
The most recent studies indicate that it is/was 5,500 miles long, including the trenches and natural hill and cliff barriers incorporated with the wall itself.
The first walls were built of stamped earth (compressed soil). Later improvements were built of stone, especially where the wall was near a mountain to provide it.

It was for keeping a lookout for the Mongolians invading China at that time and also to attack them while at the same time attacking them from somewhere high where the Mongolians could not fight back easily.
The Great Wall of China was made to defend; basically stop the Mongols from entering and invading the dynasty. I remember reading somewhere that when there were still in the times of emperors in China, an emperor ordered people to build a wall against his enemies (the Mongolians) so that China would… have some kind of defense. When that wall was finished, it was a lot shorter than it is today. The wall kept falling down over time, and so the emperor made the people rebuild it over and over. As the emperors changed, they all had ordered their people to make the wall longer and longer and even longer. Over time, the Great Wall of China was formed and hundreds of thousands of people had worked on it. It is now today the longest man-made structure on Earth and one of the Seven Ancient Wonders of the World. (MORE)

Sometimes kings and queens of ancient China became herdsmen to these Nomads. If you will read some books or …research works you will find out more materials.
