NANJING 南京 – China’s Old Capital

Except for Beijing and Xi’an no other city had such an impact on Chinese history as Nanjing. It was the capital of China no less than 4 times (1368-1421, 1912, 1928-1937, 1945-1949) and it was in Nanjing where the Chinese were forced to sign the Treaty of Nanking with the British, from where the Taiping rebellion was directed, where the Kuomingtang set up their headquarter, where the infamous Rape of Nanjing took place and where Sun Yat-Sen and several Ming emperors are buried.

Today it is the capital of Jiangsu province and one of China’s 10 largest cities with a population of approx. 8 million. It is located 320km (200miles) west of Shanghai, a distance that is now covered in just 1h 15min with the fastest HSRs.

The photos are from two separate visits (15th May & 27th November 2010)

Great views. I kinda start appreciating the Greenland Center seeing those closeups. Very sci-fi and in a very tasteful manner.

Interesting. It would be great to have some captions to the pictures - where were they taken and what's on 'em. Plus less pictures per post.
