Located south of the Jishan Hill and 5 km
north to Jingzhou, Jinan used to be the capital city of the State of
Chu (689BC-278BC), serving some 20 kings. It was the political, economic
and cultural center of Chu and a big city in south China at the time.
The earthrammed city walls have been reserved well today, 6-7 m high
in some sections. The ruins show the city is nearly square: 4. 5 km
from east to west and 3.5 km from south to north, covering some 16 sq.
km. It is on the list of cultural relics under state protection.
