Nanjing

NanjingNanjing is a city situated in the heartland of the lower Yangtze River region in China, which has long been a major center of culture, education, research, politics, economy, transport networks and tourism.It is recognized as one of the Four Great Ancient Capitals of China. It is one of the world’s largest cities, enjoying peace and prosperity despite wars and disasters.

In spite of its glorious times, this city also witnessed the hardest moment of this nation. During the Opium War  after Lin Zexu, an assiduous official, burnt twenty thousand boxes of opium in Humen. On a battleship in Xiaguan of the city, the corrupt Qing government, under threat by Britain troops, signed the notorious Nanjing Treaty. Bias treaty which ceded Hong Kong away from China for more than hundred years. Following this treaty, invasions and colonial rule of the western countries intensified and China sank into a harder and darker time.

Peasant groups of Taiping rebelled against the Qing government in 1853 and established the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom in this region, the name of the metropolis at that time, and formed an army. Unfortunately, the peasant regime was short-lived and in 1864, troops of Qing government won the city back.

Nowadays, in Xuyuan Garden, which is within the Presidential Palace, one can still see part of the former residence of the Heavenly King of Taiping Heavenly Kingdom.It was the Revolution of 1911, the Chinese bourgeois democratic revolution led by Dr.Sun Yat-Sen overthrew the Qing Dynasty. On the first day of 1912, Dr. Sun Yet-sen gave his simple but sublime address on the inauguration held for the new Republic of China. Today, a memorial hall in Dr. Sun Yat-Sen’s Mausoleum, houses a statue of Dr. Sun sculpted out of white marble.
