The Dujiangyan is an ancient irrigation system in Dujiangyan City, Sichuan, China. Originally constructed around 256 BC by the State of Qin as an irrigation and flood control project, it is still in use today. The system’s infrastructure is on the Min River (Minjiang), the longest tributary of the Yangtze. The Dujiangyan, the Zhengguo Canal in Shaanxi and the Lingqu Canal in Guangxi are collectively known as the “three great hydraulic engineering projects of the Qin.



The Yuzui or Fish Mouth Levee, named for its conical head that is said to resemble the mouth of a fish, is the key part of Li Bing’s construction. It is an artificial levee that divides the water into inner and outer streams. The inner stream is deep and narrow, while the outer stream is relatively shallow but wide. This special structure ensures that the inner stream carries approximately 60% of the river’s flow into the irrigation system during dry season. While during flood, this amount decreases to 40% to protect the people from flooding. The outer stream drains away the rest, flushing out much of the silt and sediment.



Old- Mon Pig Knuckle is one of the most famous and delicious dish in Szechuan cuisine. Slowly stewed with kidney beans and Chinese spices, it appears like snow color & flower shape, and tastes smooth, delicate and crisp but not greasy. The kidney beans are soft like velvet, and the soup is flavorful. This dish has been popular for hundreds of years, becoming one of the classics of Chengdu Flavor.










The Leshan Giant Buddha is a 71-metre (233 ft) tall stone statue, built between 713 and 803 (during the Tang Dynasty), depicting Maitreya. It is carved out of a cliff face that lies at the confluence of the Min River and Dadu River in the southern part of Sichuan province in China, near the city of Leshan. The stone sculpture faces Mount Emei, with the rivers flowing below its feet. It is the largest and tallest stone Buddha statue in the world and it is by far the tallest pre-modern statue in the world.




Sanxingdui is the name of an archaeological site and the previously unknown Bronze Age culture for which it is the type site. Sanxingdui is now believed to be the site of a major ancient Chinese city in what is now Sichuan, China. The Bronze Age culture which was first discovered in 1929 and then re-discovered in 1986 when archaeologists excavated remarkable artifacts, that radiocarbon dating dated as being from the 12th-11th centuries BCE. The culture that produced these artifacts is now known as the Sanxingdui Culture, and archeologists are identifying it with the ancient kingdom of Shu. The artifacts are displayed in the Sanxingdui Museum located near the city of Guanghan.

The discovery at Sanxingdui, as well as other discoveries such as the Xingan tombs in Jiangxi, challenges the traditional narrative of Chinese civilization spreading from the central plain of the Yellow River, and Chinese archaeologists have begun to speak of “multiple centers of innovation jointly ancestral to Chinese civilization.”



九眼桥位于成都市锦江区,古名宏济桥,又名镇江桥,始建于明万历二十一年(1593),由当时布政使余一龙所建。系石栏杆、石桥面的大拱桥,长4宽3高3丈,下有9洞。在清朝乾隆五十三年(1788)由总督李世杰 补修时,改名为九眼桥。桥如其名,共有9洞,原名宏济桥,又名镇江桥,是锦江上最大的一座石拱桥。古人爱用“长虹卧波”来形容石拱桥的壮丽,可是九眼桥却不是―道“长虹”,而是一张“弯弓”。在桥南不远处曾经有过一座与桥同期建造的回澜塔(俗名白塔)与之相映成趣,构成“桥是弯弓塔是箭”的奇特景观。
