Nanchang is known for the Tengwang Pavilion, a towering pavilion dating to 653 and Nanchang's People's Square, the second largest public square in China. Nanchang has a population of approximately 1.57 million people and a metropolitan area of about 4.07 million people. [1] (http://www.travelchinaguide.com/cityguides/jiangxi/nanchang/)

Economics

Nanchang exists as a hub of the agricultural production in Jiangxi Province. Such products as rice and oranges are economic staple.

Nanchang also is a center of the production of traditional Chinese medicine and pharmaceuticals.

History

In the early Han Dynasty (201 BC), a city called Gąn (灌) was constructed.

In 589 AD (Sui Dynasty), it was renamed Hongzhou (洪州), and eventually Nanchang.

In the early Tang Dynasty (653 AD), Li Yuanying, the brother of the Emperor Taizong, constructed a building called Tengwang Ge (滕王阁), now a famous tourist site.

In 675 AD, the twenty-five-year-old Wang Bo (王勃) wrote the classic “Tengwang Ge Xu”. The building as well as the city became celebrated for Wang’s introduction article.

Nonetheless, the building experienced 28 cycles of destructions and reconstructions. In 1926, it was burned down for the last time. In 1989, Tengwang Ge was resurrected to a new height of 57 m, presumably according to the design of Song Dynasty.
