1755 · Completion of the Puning Temple

Age 0

The Puning Temple (also referred to as the Big Buddha Temple) was completed in 1755, while the Qing Dynasty was ruled by the Qianlong Emperor. It features drum and bell towers, elaborate pavilions, and large temple halls. The founding of the temple was used by the Qianlong Emperor to commemorate their recent victory over the Dzungar people.
1772 · Siku Quanshu

Age 17

The Qing Dynasty compiled the Siku Quanshu, which would become (and remains) the largest book collection in Chinese history. The Qianlong Emperor ordered the start of this monumental task in 1772. Initially, very few people handed in books voluntarily. The emperor issued a decree that stated the books would be returned and no punishment would be made for books containing negative opinions of the government. As a result, over 4,000-5,000 books were handed in; over 3,826 scribes helped to copy every single word from the collected books by hand. Ultimately, the emperor did not keep his promise to return the books. Over 2,855 books were banned, and 400-500 more were edited or censored. Disloyal scholars were executed and many books were burned.
1796 · White Lotus Rebellion

Age 41

The White Lotus Rebellion began in 1794, when followers of the White Lotus movement rose up to protest taxes. The scope of the protest grew and gathered further support from a wide range of ordinary people. Eventually, the rebellion was large enough that the government became concerned. Despite a lack of organization, the rebels managed to score a defeat against Qing imperial forces. It wasn't until the 1800's began that the Qing dynasty changed tactics and began to suppress the rebellion. However, the conflict marked a negative turning point for the Qing Dynasty's dominance.
