Lianzhou, formerly Lian County or Lianxian, is a county-level city of northern Guangdong Province, China. Lianzhou is under the administration of the prefecture-level city of Qingyuan. Lianzhou has become famous as the host city of Lianzhou International Photography Festival and as a historic and cultural city of the Guangdong province.HistoryDuring the Qin dynasty, Lianzhou became part of Changsha Commandery. In the Western Han Dynasty (206 A.D.), Yangxian prefecture consists of three cities: Lianzhou, Liannan and Lianshan. In the Sui dynasty (581-618), the Emperor Kaihuang set Lianzhou on the Ben prefecture.On December 8, 1949, the Communist People's Liberation Army took over Lianxian from the Kuomintang. On December 20, in the same year, the People’s Government of Lianxian was set up. On April 22, 1994, after being approved by the State Council, Lianxian became Lianzhou City. In 1996, the government of the Guangdong province authorized Lianzhou as a Historic and Cultural City.There were four sayings about where the name of Lianzhou came from. First, Lianzhou was rich in coptis because of Coptis Mountain (now belongs to Lianshan Mountain). Second, there were many mountains surrounding Lianzhou. There was an old saying that "thousands of mountains were roll into one and so did the rivers"("连万山为一山,连众水为一水"). Third, Lianzhou was rich in tin ore. An old saying says that "the plumbum before refined was called Lian" ("铅之未炼者曰连"或"铅锡璞名曰连"). Finally, because of the many mountains and rivers, the region was semi-isolated. Travelling by road was difficult. It is said that from these four sayings, Lianzhou got its name.
