In the history, Qian Mausoleum encountered numerous small tomb rob, and three times of large scale, but did not succeed. Perhaps it is that the excellent geomancy protects the mausoleum from being excavated.
The first time is in the end of Tang Dynasty, Huangchao led four hundred thousand rebels, dug a deep ditch more than 40 meters in the Qian Mausoleum, but can not find the entrance of the tomb.
And later, due to the counterattack of the official army, Huangchao was forced to withdraw troops. So far, in the main peak of Liang mountain, there is still a deep ditch known as the “Huang Chao ditch”.

These strange thing made Wen Tao give up eventually.

The third is the early years of the Republic of China, the KMT generals Sun Lianzhong, in the guise of protecting Qian mausoleum, hoping to explode it through gunpowder. But in the half way, black smoke appeared suddenly, and wind everywhere, sand and stone flying, Sun Lianzhong was scared stiff, left soon with his troops, and ultimately did not succeed.
