Pingdingshan,Henan province
Pingdingshan (P¨ªngd¨«ngsh¨¡n), also known as the Eagle City, with approximately 5.2 million inhabitants is a prefecture-level city in central Henan province, People¡®s Republic of China. It borders the provincial capital of Zhengzhou to the north, Xuchang and Luohe to the east, Zhumadian to the southeast, Nanyang to the south, and Luoyang to the west. Pingdingshan was founded in 1957. In Chinese, Pingdingshan means a flat mountatin; people named Pingdingshan as the city¡®s name because there is a very flat mountain located near the city. The reason for the Eagle City can be traced back to two thousand years ago during the Spring and Autumn Annals. There was a small royal country named Ying that lived around Pingdingshan. While in ancient time, the word "Ying" means Eagle, therefore people also call Pingdingshan as the Eagle City.
