    Located in southwest Jiangsu, Nanjing lies on the southern bank of the Yangzi River, surrounded on 3 sides by a range of hills known as the Purple and Gold Mountain. Spanning approximately 6,500 sq km in area, and with more than 4.5 million population, it is the region's largest city and the capital of the province. The city's wide streets lined with beautiful plane trees and a bunch of historic and cultural sites, which make it one of the most popular tourist destinations in China. From the 3rd to the 14th centuries the city acted as the regional capital, and in 1368, under the first Ming emperor Hongwu, Nanjing became capital of China. During his reign, emperor Hongwu constructed a 130 sq km city including a magnificent palace and massive city wall with 13 gates.
