About Fuzhou

Fuzhou, the capital of Fujian Province, got its name because of the Fu Mountain to the north. It is the political, cultural, and economic center of the province and the largest city in Fujian, receiving much of its investment from Taiwan. The city's recorded history dates back to the third century AD, when it was known as Yechang. It is also still substantially influenced by Buddhism--altogether there are six key temples in Fuzhou, the largest number in China. The city is known for its profusion of springs and from early times has been known as the "spring city." More than 900 years ago, the people of Fuzhou planted numerous green banyan trees, and it is also known as "Banyan City."

Fuzhou covers an area of 4,621 square miles, including 403 square miles of the urban district. In 2007 the population was 6.3 million. There are more than 20 peoples in Fuzhou Prefecture, including the main nationality, the Hans,and such minorities as She, Manchu, Miao, and Hui.

Fuzhou produces several fine handicrafts, including Shoushan stone carving, Fuzhou bodiless lacquerware, gold and silver jewelry, the four treasures of the study, fireworks, bamboo and wooden furniture, cork pictures, ivory earrings, jade sculptures, wood carvings, porcelains, paper umbrellas, paper lanterns, and horn combs. Even in ancient times, Fuzhou was a major gateway to the outside world. Every year thousands of merchants would sail to and from Fuzhou to trade in tea, china and silk. Fuzhou has again become a crucial seaport city and manufacturing center of southeast China.
