Dujiangyan Irrigation System is an ancient technological wonder of China. More than 2,000 years ago, Li Bing (c.250-200 BC) served as a local governor of Shu State. Li Bing and his son designed this water control system and organized thousands of local people to construct the project. Dujiangyan Irrigation System and Mt. Qingcheng were placed on the World Cultural Heritage list. Qingyang palace, Mt. Qingcheng and Mt. Heming are the three holy sites of Taoism in Sichuan Province.
Anlan Suspension Bridge is one of the five ancient bridges in China. The total length is 320m. Its ancient name was called the Rope Suspension Bridge or the Bamboo and Cane Suspension Bridge. Unfortunately, a fire caused by war towards the end of the Ming dynasty destroyed the original bridge.
In 1803, a new bridge was built
