History [ edit ]
In 1123, Jin Dynasty set Guangning County (Chinese: 广宁县) in nowadays Beizhen. In Ming Dynasty, the town of Guangning became a base of the Ming troops in Liaotung and a prosperous border trading centre. In 1913, the name was changed to Beizhen, which is an alternative name of the Yiwulü Mountain, literally meaning "the guarding mountain of the North". In 1995, Beizhen County became Beining City (Chinese: 北宁市), the name of which is later changed to the current name.
