Lanzhou History

Archeological records indicate that the first humans began to settle around the ancient city of Lanzhou about 5,000 years ago. It was established as a county during the Western Han Dynasty, and named as "Jincheng", or "strong fort". The city received its existing name during the early years of the Sui Dynasty. In 1666, during the reign of Emperor Kangxi of Qing Dynasty city of Lanzhou was made as the capital of Gansu Province.

The favorable geographical location and a commercial hub for central China during the Han Dynasty made Lanzhou an outstanding place to visit. With the flourishing of the Silk Road during the Tang and Song Dynasties, the city attained much more important role than ever.
