Guangzhou History.from googleearth

It is believed that the first city built at the site of Guangzhou was Panyu (蕃禺, later si mplifed to 番禺; the locals pronounced this in Cantonese as Poon Yu) founded in 214 B C. The city has been continuously occupied since that time. Panyu was expanded when it became the capital of the Nanyue Kingdom (南越) in 206 BC.

Recent archaeological founding of her palace suggests that the city might have traded f requently with foreigners by the sea routes. The foreign trade continued through every following dynasty and the city rem ains a major international trading port to this day. The Han Dynasty annexed Nanyue in 111 BC, and Panyu became a provincial capital a nd remains so until this day. In 226 AD, the city became the seat of the Guang Prefec ture (廣州; Guangzhou). Therefore, 'Guangzhou' was the name of the prefecture, not of the city. However, people grew accustomed to calling the city Guangzhou, instead of P anyu.

Although the Chinese nam e of Guangzhou replaced Panyu as the nam e of the walled ci ty, Panyu was still the name of the area surrounding the walled city until the end of Qi ng era.

Arabs and Persians sacked Guangzhou (known to them as Sin-Kalan) in AD 758, 2 acc ording to a local Guangzhou governm ent report on October 30, 758, which corresponde d to the day of Guisi (癸巳) of the ninth lunar month in the first year of the Qianyuan era of Emperor Suzong of the Tang Dynasty.[1][2][3]

During the Northern Song Dynasty, a celebrated poet called Su Shi visited Guangzhou's Baozhuangyan Temple and wrote the inscription 'Liu Rong' (Six Banyan Trees) becaus e of the six banyan trees he saw there. It has since been called the Temple of the Six Banyan Trees.

The Portuguese were the first Europeans to arrive to the city by sea, obtaining the mo nopoly for external trade with its harbour by 1511. They were later expelled from their

settlements in Guangzhou (in Portuguese Canton or Cantao), but instead granted use of Macao (first occupied in 1511) as a trade base with the city in 1557. They would ke ep a near monopoly of foreign trade in the region until the arrival of the Dutch in the early XVII century.

After China brought Taiwan under its control in 1683, the Qing government became op en to encouraging foreign trade. Guangzhou quickly emerged as one of the most adapt able ports for negotiating commerce and before long, many foreign ships were going th ere to procure cargos. Portuguese in Macao, Spanish in Manila, and Armenians and Mu slims from India were already actively trading in the port by the 1690s, when the Fren ch and English East India companies' ships began frequenting the port. Other companie s were soon to follow: the Ostend General India Company in 1717; Dutch East India C ompany in 1729; the first Danish ship in 1731, which was followed by a Danish Asiatic Company ship in 1734; the Swedish East India Company in 1732; followed by an occa sional Prussian and Trieste Company ship; the Americans in 1784; and the first ships f rom Australia in 1788. By the middle of the 18th century, Guangzhou had emerged as one of the world's great trading ports, which was a distinction it maintained until the o utbreak of the Opium War in 1839 and the opening of other ports in China in 1842. Guangzhou was one of the five Chinese treaty ports opened by the Treaty of Nanking (signed in 1842) at the end of the First Opium War between Britain and China. The ot her ports were Fuzhou, Xiamen, Ningbo, and Shanghai.

In 1918, 'Guangzhou' became the official name of the city, when an urban council was established in it. Panyu became a county's name south of Guangzhou. In both 1930 a nd 1953, Guangzhou was promoted to the status of a Municipality, but each promotion was cancelled within the year.

Japanese troops occupied Guangzhou from 1938-10-12 to 1945-09-16.

Communist forces entered the city on October 14, 1949. Their urban renewal projects i

mproved the lives of many residents. New housing on the shores of the Pearl River pro vided homes for the poor boat people. Reforms by Deng Xiaoping, who came to power in the late 1970s, led to rapid economic growth due to the city's close proximity to H ong Kong and access to the Pearl River.

As labor costs increased in Hong Kong, manufacturers opened new plants in the cities of Guangdong including Guangzhou. As the largest city in one of China's wealthiest pro vinces, Guangzhou attracts farmers from the countryside looking for factory work. Cant onese links to overseas Chinese and beneficial tax reforms of the 1990s have aided th e city's rapid growth.

In 2000, Huadu and Panyu were merged into Guangzhou as districts, and Conghua and Zengcheng becam e county-level cities of Guangzhou.
