Picture caption[edit]

The caption for the picture is quite long (longer than the article itself--and it is still in smaller font!). Maybe it is worth moving the caption to the article's main text.

Problems Encountered[edit]

In the Problems Encountered section of this article, it talks about Li Beng. I wonder if this should be Li Bing or if it is someone else. (talk) 04:11, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

2008 Sichuan earthquake[edit]

Two Kings Temple was damaged —Preceding unsigned comment added by Yuanyelele (talkcontribs) 07:05, 13 May 2008 (UTC)

Was the irrigation system itself damaged? (talk) 16:40, 14 May 2008 (UTC) “都江堰水利枢纽功能没有受到影响,鱼嘴部位有一定下沉,但可修复,其他部分则仍然完好。 ...... 都江堰景区受损严重的是文物古建筑,二王庙受损尤其严重,有部分已经坍塌,剩下部分也较危险,估计是需要重建了。”Yuanyelele (talk) 11:54, 16 May 2008 (UTC)

Further Problems Encountered[edit]

In the following paragraph,should "Bi Ling" "Li Bing"?

Two Kings Temple Erwang or Two Kings Temple is located on the bank of the river at the foot of Mount Yulei. The original Wangdi Temple built in memory of an ancient Shu king was relocated and so locals renamed the temple here in honour of Bi Ling and his legendary son whom they had posthumously promoted to kings.[21] —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:12, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

Oops, have changed it, thanks. Mutt (talk) 11:23, 20 May 2008 (UTC)

Bing Li is correct. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:03, 11 November 2010 (UTC)

Statue of Bing Li, Oldest Human Statue of Ancient China?[edit]

Someone please check citations 31 and 32. I simply cannot believe that the statue of Bing Li is the earliest extant human statue of ancient China (the terracotta warrior of the Emperor Chin's tomb being at least one obvious contradiction). —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:49, 14 December 2010 (UTC)

In Chronicle of the Chinese Emperors (2009), ISBN 0-500-28764-3, Ann Paludan (on p. 47) writes "The earliest stone figure of a named individual in China, this statue of the great 3rdcentury BC engineer, Li Bing, made in 168 AD and found in 1974..." (my underscores).

This page is based largely on two sources, "Taming the Floodwaters", which cites sources and seems reliable, and a tourist website, which seems....less reliable. It would be better if we more sources. (talk) 09:31, 4 September 2011 (UTC)

Fan Changsheng[edit]

Under Dragon-Taming Temple it is claimed that Fan Changsheng was the founder of Tianshi Dao in the Jin Dynasty (265–420 AD) and that the temple was built in the third century AD in honour of Fan Changsheng, but neither the article on Fan Changsheng nor the article on Tianshi Dao support this. The latter page says Tianshi Dao was founded in year 142 AD by Zhang Daoling, i.e. 123 before the Jin Dynasty and 176 years before the death of Fan Changsheng (318 AD), and doesn't even mention Fan Changsheng (who, by the way, had at least 19 years left to live after the themple was built).
