Jingzhou, the ancient name of "Jiangling", the prefecture-level city of Hubei Province, is the location of the capital city of Chu in the Spring and Autumn Period and the Warring States Period. Located in the south-central part of Hubei Province, on the banks of the middle reaches of the Yangtze River and in the hinterland of the Jianghan Plain, it is one of the first 24 Chinese historical and cultural cities announced by the State Council. It is an excellent tourist city in China, a national garden city, an important port city in the middle reaches of the Yangtze River, and an important industry in the Central South. The base and light textile base are known as the “steel waist of the Yangtze River Economic Belt”.

Jingzhou has a long history and a splendid culture. With a history of more than 2,600 years, Jiancheng is the birthplace of Chu culture and the center of the culture of the Three Kingdoms. In 689 BC, Chu Wenwang was built in Yu (now Jingan City, Jingzhou District, Jingzhou City). He has 20 Chu kings and a capital of 411 years. He created a Chu culture comparable to the ancient Greek culture of Athens. During the Three Kingdoms period, Jingzhou was the place where the heroes competed, and the cultural heritage of the three countries was widespread.
