The Dujiangyan Dam

An over 2000 year-old technological wonder located 45 km away from Chengdu. This water control and irrigation dam was designed to check the Mingjiang River that used to flood the Chengdu agricultural area resulting in the local farmers suffering a lot from the water disaster. Due to the success of the project, the dam automatically diverts the Mingjiang River and channels it into irrigation canals and the local people benefit a lot from it - It's another World Heritage Site in China.
