Chinese city populations are really tough to pin down, I've seen figures anywhere from 300,000 to 4 million for Chengde. If anybody knows a reliable figure, please add.

Found a figure of 700,000 in a recent edition of Lonely Planet China. Don't know how accurate this may be, but I'll use it.--Jkiang 08:34, 28 Aug 2004 (UTC)

How old is Chengde?[edit]

I would like to know how old Chengde is, if anyone knows, please let me know.


I have rewritten this article almost entirely. Chengde itself is not a World Heritage site, only a very small part it is. Thus, the article should be about the whole city, which is actually very large. Besides major expansion of this article, I think the following work needs to be done with Chengde-related pages:

  • Creation of a separate article for the Eight Outer Temples, along with link fix to this template so "its outlying temples" will link there instead of here.
  • Some sort of coordination for the temple articles if they each are going to have their own page. Right now only two of the eight temples (Putuo Zongcheng Temple and Puning Temple) have their own articles. Maybe condense them into one, and add information about the other six there?
  • Possible renaming of Chengde Mountain Resort to Mountain Resort, Chengde? As far as I know it is not really known by that name outside of Wikipedia. That article also needs major cleanup.

Just some thoughts. shoeofdeath 18:08, 6 September 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Chengde was detached from Inner Mongolia and Attached to Hebei by the Qing[edit]

The Qing Emperors noted the rising Han population in Chengde so they detached it from Inner Mongolia and attached it to Hebei instead.

The name means "to convey..."

Well, no, placenames aren't infinitives and that's not anything like what means or has meant


and it's not anything supported by that source. The actual meaning is something closer to "upholding" or "receiving virtue", with probable reference to the dynasty's obligation to (or gift from) its ancestors.

In any case, the current claim is demonstrably false and demonstrably unsupported by its claimed source, so I'll go ahead and nix it. — LlywelynII 05:50, 28 January 2019 (UTC)[reply]
