Mount Qingcheng was the birthplace of Taoism, which is celebrated in a series of ancient temples and ethereal fantasyland like scenery. In Chinese history, most social values are derived from Taoism and Confucianism. Dominating the Chengdu Plains to the south of the Dujiangyan Irrigation System, it is a mountain famous in Chinese history as the place where in 142 AD, the philosopher Zhang Ling founded the doctrine of Chinese Taoism. Most of the essential elements of Taoism culture are embodied in the teachings of Taoism that emanated from the temples that were subsequently built on the mountain during the Jin and Tang dynasties (266-917 AD). The mountain resumed its role as the intellectual and spiritual centre of Taoism in the 17th century.
