Jiangxi

Jiangxi Province, “Gan” for short, is located in the south riverbank of the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze River, in southeast of China. The province has its name after the Jiangnanxi Circuit established by Emperor Xuanzong of Tang in AD 733. Meanwhile, the Ganjiang River consisting of Zhang River and Gong River crosses the territory of Jiangxi Province, so Jiangxi Province is called Gan for short because of this geographical fact.
