STUDY IN Zhejiang

Why Zhejiang




Zhejiang Province, located in the southern part of Yangtze River Delta of the southeast coast of China, lies in the east of the East China Sea, south of Fujian Province, west of Jiangxi Province and Anhui Province, and north of Shanghai and Jiangsu Province. Zhejiang, which literally means a zigzagging river, is named because of the largest river in that territory, Qiantang River. The name of the province is often abbreviated to its first character "浙" or Zhe, with Hangzhou as its provincial capital.

Geography

Zhejiang Province is situated to the south of Taihu Lake on the coast of the East China Sea, its coastline extending over 2,200 kilometers. The Qiantang River flowing through the Province used to be called the Zhejiang River, after which the Province was named. Zhejiang Province covers an area of over 100,000 square kilometres with a population of 48.98 million (2006), which mainly comprises the Han, She, Hui, Manchu, Miao and other nationalities. Hangzhou is the capital of the Province.

Zhejiang Province has a temperate and humid climate with four distinctive seasons. The average annual temperature of the Province ranges from 15°C to 19°C (59°F to 66.2°F) January, the coldest month, has an average temperature of 2°C to 8°C (35.6°F to 46.4°F), while July, the hottest month, has an average temperature of 27C to 30C with an average annual precipitation of 850 - 1700 mm, Zhejiang Province is one of the fine weathered province of China.

History

Civilization emerged in Zhejiang back in the New Stone Age. The Da Yu Mausdeum at the foot of Huiji Mountain is said to be the tomb of Yu, the reputed founded of China’s Xia Dynasty (21th-16th century B.C.). When China was unified in the Qin Dynasty (221-207 B.C.), Zhejiang was under the administration of the three prefectures---Huiji, Zhang and Minzhong. There remains at the food of Baoshi Hill in Hangzhou a stone relic showing that the first emperor of the Qin Dyansty paid an inspection tour to Zhejiang. During the tenth century, Qian Liu, a former governor of Tang Dynasty (618—907 A.D.) established the State of Wuyue in Zhejiang. During the 12th century, the Southern Song Dynasty moved its capital to Hangzhou in face of external aggression. The Province became what it is today since the Qing Dynasty.

Population and Nationalities

The population of Zhejiang in 2017 is 56.57 million. According to census statistics, there are in Zhejiang 53 ethnic minorities (only short of De’ang and Bao’an ethnic minorities in China), and the ethnic population is 399.7 thousand.

The only She Autonomous County in China - Jingning County is located in Zhejiang.
