I might be wrong but I think your question comes from what we currently think of the purpose of walls but. According to scripture New Jerusalem will be the dwelling place of God and all of the saints who received resurrected bodies Rev. 21:3.

It will be the earths source of light, shining SEVEN times brighter then the current sun at noon day, and as bright as the current sun at noon day during midnight Isa. 30:26; 60:19-20.
