The name Shanxi means "west of the mountains", a reference to the province's location to the west of the Taihang Mountains and with the Yellow River to its east. Officially abbreviated to "Jin" in Chinese, after the State of Jin that existed here during the Spring and Autumn period. The Xihoudu Culture and the historical residential courtyards in Dingcun show that mankind has inhabited this land since the Paleolithic Age. Shanxi is blessed with a rich cultural heritage and countless historical relics.
Shanxi is known for its wonderful scenery, fertile land and the abundance of the five grains. It is home to the famous Taihang Mountains, Lvliang and the Hukou Waterfall, which every Chinese person is familiar with as it is printed on the back of the 50 Yuan banknote.
