Nanjing: China's Historical Southern Capital

Nanjing in Chinese quite literally means 'Southern Capital'. It has alternated with Beijing as the capital of big empires and modern governments throughout history. Today, Nanjing stands as one of the Four Great Ancient Capitals of China, along with Beijing, Xi'an, and Luoyang.

During the Ming Empire, Nanjing was the largest city in China. The remains of the empires of the past can be toured all over the city and the nearby Purple Mountain (Zijinshan) area has many historical, cultural, and religious sites to visit.

As the city that once fell defenseless to the Nanjing Massacre in 1937, the government has since built museums and memorials to commemorate Sun Yat-Sen and his revolution and the Chinese who died during the Japanese occupation. There is also a memorial for the thousands of American airmen who died defending China.

A natural spring in a park on the edge of Zhenjiang has been famed since the Tang (7th–9th century) as the best in Jiangsu for making tea. It is now marketed as the "First Spring under Heaven".
