Memories of Nanchang, JiangXi Provence, China

Taken back in 2006 when I had the great opportunity to travel to China for work. Two weeks in Nanchang, the capital of the JiangXi Provence.

Taken on the canal overlooking the GanJiang River, early in the morning, before the rush of traffic clogs the road.


And part of the Tengwang Pavillion:

Nanchang certainly isn't one of the top tourist stops when visiting China, but it certainly represents more of the "real China" - a typical city with industrial roots and a role in the Chinese Revolution. Back in 2006, I looked up some more information around this online and found this entry in Wikipedia:

The Nanchang Uprising (Nánchāng Qǐyì) (August 1, 1927) was the first major Kuomintang-Communist engagement of the Chinese Civil War. Communist forces in Nanchang rebelled under the leadership of He Long and Zhou Enlai attempting to seize control of the city after the end of the first Kuomintang-Communist alliance.
Other important leaders are Zhu De, Ye Ting, Liu Bocheng.
Communist forces occupied Nanchang successfully and escaped from the siege of Kuomintang forces at August 5, withdrawing to the Jinggang Mountains of
western Jiangxi. The day of August 1st is later regarded as the anniversary of the founding of the People's Liberation Army. It is regarded as the first gun against KMT.

If you visited my blog prior to 2011, my blog header image was a panoramic of the city, taken on top of the Shengjin Pagoda:
