Sichuan

There is a saying that Sichuan is a place where the young don’t come and the old don’t leave. Sichuan, a travelling paradise for many toursits,  has its own beauty in each four seasons. The Chinese often refer to Sichuan as the Heavenly Kingdom(Tianfu Zhiguo),a reference to the province ‘s abundance in natural resources and cultural heritage.Its name ,’Four Rivers’,refers tjo four of the more than 80 mighty rivers spilling across the Chuanxi plain in the east.

Sichuan is the largest province in the south-west, with a population displaying as much diversity as its landscape.While the east supports one of the densest rural populaion in the world, the west rises in giant steps to the Tibetan plateau, where green tea becomes butter tea and Confucianism yields to Buddhism.These windswept grasslands and deep forests are home to the Qiang and Tibetans.

History of Sichuan

The first evidence of human habitation in what is now Sichuan Province consists of simple tools and a skull cap dating to the Paleolithic (Old Stone) Age. During the Neolithic period (approximately 8,000 – 2,000 BC) people living in Sichuan used axes, pottery jars, bone needles, and crude weapons, but the first major cultures in the province were the Ba and Shu peoples, who lived in what was then called Liangzhou from about 2000 BC. The Shu people lived on the Chengdu Plain while the Ba kingdom was centered in Eastern Sichuan. Many Shu and Ba relics can today be seen at the Sichuan Provincial Museum.
Twenty-three hundred years ago a Shu Emperor named Kaiming IX moved his capital slightly east and named the new town Chengdu (meaning, ‘becoming a city’) in hopes that it would one day be a metropolis. Chengdu has remained Sichuan’s capital ever since. More>>
