Alienum phaedrum torquatos nec eu, vis detraxit periculis ex, nihil expetendis in mei. Mei an pericula euripidis, hinc partem ei est.

Taiyuan (also called Bingzhou, Jinyang, Lonngcheng in history) is the capital of Shanxi Province, and a city rich in political, military, and religious history. Located along the invasion corridors between the nomadic regions to the north and the agricultural heartland around the Yellow River, it was the site of repeated invasion and occupation over the centuries. The central Shanxi region is rich in Buddhist and Taoist sites, including the famous Mt. Wutai and the Taoist Palace of Eternal Joy. Taiyuan is now a major industrial city in northern China, close to major iron and coal reserves.
Settlements in the Taiyuan region date back to Neolithic times. The town, then known as Jinyang, was founded some 2,400 years ago. Its location in a valley near the Fen River put it near the invasion routes from the nomadic regions in the north to the agricultural heartland near the Yellow River.
The city suffered from frequent occupation by invaders, including the Xiongnu in Han times and the Toba (Tabgatch) Turkic rulers of the Northern Wei in the 4th-6th centuries. The founder of the Tang dynasty, Li Yuan, used Taiyuan as a base for the peasant uprising that overthrew the Sui regime in the early 7th century. Jinyang was destroyed in 979 by Song dynasty forces, but rebuilt three years later and renamed Songcheng. Starting in 1375 in the early Ming dynasty the town became the seat of government for the Taiyuan region and expanded greatly.
English, French, and Russian communities exploited the region’s mineral resources in the 19th century. Taiyuan was one of the centers of the nationalistic Boxer Rebellion around 1900, when all the foreign missionaries and their families were put to death on the order of the provincial governor. After the end of the Qing imperial system in 1911, Taiyuan was governed by a regional warlord named Yan Xishan between 1912 and 1949. Operating under the Kuomintang but largely an independent ruler, he suppressed opium smoking and foot-binding, among other reforms, but allowed development of coal resources by the Japanese in the early 1940’s.
这个城市经常被侵略者占领,包括汉代的匈奴和四至六世纪的北魏突厥帝王托巴(Tabgatch)。唐代的创始人李元以太原为起义,推翻7世纪初的隋朝政权。 979年晋阳被摧毁,三年后重建,改称宋城。从明初的1375年开始,该镇成为太原地区的政府所在地,并大大扩张。
英,法,俄社区在19世纪开采了该地区的矿产资源。大约在1900年左右,太原是民族主义义和团起义的中心之一,当时所有的外国传教士及其家属都被省长命令处死。 1911年清帝国制度结束后,太原在1912年至1949年期间被阎锡山的地区军阀统治。在国民党的统治下,主要是独立的统治者,他禁止吸烟,缠足等等。允许日本人在二十世纪四十年代初开发煤炭资源。
