Dujiangyan is one of the world´s first irrigation systems. It´s located on the upper reaches of the Minjiang River, west of GuanXian county. It was built between 306-251 BC, by the local people under the guidance of Libing and his son. Fortunately the Dujiangyan Irrigation system brings the vast Chengdu Plain under irrigation and has protected it against droughts and floods for over 2,300 years. Because of this Chengdu Plain has turned into the land of abundance with a mild climate and fertile soil.

Qingcheng Mountain is the headstream of Chinese Taoism. The initiator of Taoism, Zhang Taolin in the end of East Han Dynasty, came to Qingcheng Mountain to instruct Taoism from Shanxi. There still go round supernatural stories describing how he fighted hard with devils, how the "Brush Pen Groove" and the "Three Island Stone" formed. Since Jin Dynasty and Tang Dynasty, there are many Taoist Temples with flourishing burning incense, so Qingcheng Mountain was also called "Supernatural Beings of Capital", "Original Courty Yard of Taoist Master". Many state men, writers left handwriting. In 143 (second year of Han Wu Empire), the initiator of Taoism came to Chicheng Cliff in Qingcheng Mountain and initiated Mt.Qicheng "Five Decalities of Rice Taoism" according to "the theory of Laozi". After Taoist master Zhang Daoling passed away, Qingcheng Mountain also became properous as the headstream of Taoism, original Mountain of Taoist Master, etc. Taoism developed seven sects. there were 40 Taoism temples. In the end of ninth century, Taoism scholar Du Guangting researched deeply the Taoism, interjected all sects and became a great master.
