History [ edit ]

Originally called Zhangqiu County with Mingshui (明水) as its capital, Zhangqiu City was established in August 1992. Located in central Shandong province, Zhangqiu is 50 kilometers to the east of Jinan, the capital of Shandong province. It is 120 kilometers north from Mount Tai and the Yellow River is the north border of Zhangqiu. Jinan Yaoqiang International Airport is situated at Yaoqiang Village of Zhangqiu.

Zhangqiu is the hometown of the poet Li Qingzhao in the Song Dynasty, and home to Longshan Culture that existed around 2900~2100 BC. Longshan Culture is known for its black ceramics and the earliest features to late characterize the Shang civilization, scapulimancy and hangtu construction (see Chengziya Archaeological Site).

Zhangqiu is known for its springs and scenery outside the crowded city of Jinan.[citation needed] The East Jingshi Road and several Province Highways connect Mingshui and Jinan.
