This “Southern Capital” is situated strategically on the Yangtze River, a location that has made it important since the earliest times, though it was not until 600 BC that there were the beginnings of a walled settlement.

It became known for its forges, foundries and weaving, especially for the veined brocade made in noble houses and monasteries. View more
