High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles Ximen Bao ( ) was an
ancient Chinese government minister and court advisor to Marquis
Wen of Wei ( ) (445 BC-396 BC) during the Warring States (481
BC-221 BC) period of China. He was known as an early rationalist,
who had the State of Wei abolish by law the inhumane practice of
sacrificing people to river deities. Although the earlier statesman
Sunshu Ao is credited as China's first hydraulic engineer (damming
a river to create a large irrigation reservoir), Ximen Bao is
nonetheless credited as the first engineer in China to create a
large canal irrigation system.
