Two unique features of this section are the battlements on both sides and the branch walls . Other parts of the Great Wall have battlements only on the outer side and parapets on the inner side , but here both the outer and inner parapets are crenellated with merlons , so that shots could be fired at the enemy on both sides.
The mountain ridge branches out from either inside or outside the main Wall , and another piece of wall was built on this mountain, known as : Branch Wall, which was on the mountain ridge but connected with the main wall ,watch towers built on it .The Branch Wall really played an important role in the past .
