Jinzhou, also called Tuhe in ancient times, is located in the southwestern part of Liaoning Province, in the Eastern section of the “Liaoxi Corridor”, which connects land transportation between China’s North and Northeast. It guards a passage into the country, and has long been a center of politics, economics, culture and transportation in the Liaoxi Corridor, even since ancient times.
Jinzhou’s history and culture run deep. The story behind the phrase, “The old horse knows the way”, and the famous “Songjin War” both took place here, as well as the famous Liaoshen Campaign of 1948. The attack on Jinzhou even laid the foundation for the liberation of the entire Northeast.
Today, Jinzhou is an emerging tourist city surrounded by mountains and sea. The main attractions are the Liaoshen Campaign Memorial, Guangji Pagoda, Guanyin Pavilion, Bijia Mountain Sky Bridge and the Thousand Buddhas Hall Grotto in Wanfotang Village.
