History: The Grand Canal in Hangzhou is famous in the entire world on account of being the longest man made canal. It had been built almost 2000 years ago and since then played an important role in the Chinese Primary Economy. Today, it mainly serves as a water diversion passage.

The canal was built in various sections through many years and the conglomeration of these separated sections took place during the Sui Dynasty under the order of emperor Yangdi. Thousands of laborers were appointed for the work and many of them died out of the tremendous hard labor that they had undertaken. The entire project consumed an enormous amount of wealth and resulted in the final demise of the Sui Dynasty.
