Changsha Holidays Overview

 

Changsha is the capital city of China’s Hunan province which is located in south-central China. The city of Changsha is situated in the valley of the Xiang river which is a branch of the great Yangtze River of China.
 
The origins of Changsha can be traced back nearly 3000 years, to the period between 770 BC and 476 BC when it was an important town in the Chu State. The State of Chu was one of the warring states that existed before Emperor Qin unified China. Changsha was then set up as an individual country during the Qin dynasty but it came into its own under the Han Dynasty which ruled from 206 B.C to 220 BC. In fact one of Changsha’s most important landmarks, the archeological site of Mawangdui dates back to the Han Dynasty. This site contains three tombs of people who belonged to the western Han Dynasty. Several relics have been unearthed from these tombs including silk products, lacquer works, potteries and ceramics, weapons and herbs which are today visible in the various exhibits of the Hunan Provincial Museum.
 
Changsha assumed much importance during China’s Qing dynasty (1644-1911), as well for during that time it was developed into an important political, economic and cultural center of the Hunan Province.
 
Changsha has an additional claim to fame as it is associated with Chairman Mao Zedong who is credited with the founding of the Chinese Communist Party and the People’s Republic of China. Chairman Mao Zedong was born in the village of Shaoshan which is located 130 kilometers to the south west of Changsha. Today the chairman’s homes in Shaoshan have been preserved as a tourist site while the village also sports a statue of the Chinese leader who is today both loved and hated by the Chinese people.
