Intro to Nanjing

Nánjīng (南京) is located in Jiangsu Province in the east of China. It is situated on the southern bank of the lower part of the Yangtze river. The name Nanjing means "Southern Capital," as opposed to Beijing which is the "Northern Capital." Nanjing has been the capital city of China several times, starting in the early Ming dynasty, then later again during the Republic of China era. The city was also the seat of the Taiping rebellion that rocked the Qing dynasty in the 19th Century.
