Liaoning - China


Liaoning has a long history. From 1766 B.C. to 1122 B.C. it was part of the territory of the Shang Dynasty.   During the various dynasties that followed, administrative setups developed here. This is the reason for many historical relics. The Province is the birthplace of the Manchu nationality. It has many preserved imperial palaces and tombs built in the Manchu style in the early days of the Qing Dynasty from 1644 to 1911.

It was once a colony of imperialism. During the 1940s, Russian and Japanese aggressors carried out frenzied wars here. The people here faced deep miseries. The imperialists exploited cheap labor.  The local industries were of colonial in nature and lacked the processing capabilities. During the 1940s at the time of Chinese people’s struggle for national liberation, imperialism was overthrown in the Northeast and Liaoning was liberated.  It is the smallest province in the country. Due to its shape and location, it is also known as the “Golden Triangle”.
