    Putian, also known as "Xing-Hua", is located in the eastern coast of Fujian and at latitude 24°59'- 25°46' north and longitude 118°27’-119°40' east. Covering a area of 4,060.4 square kilometers, Putian borders Taiwan Strait to the east, Quanzhou to the west and to the south and Fuzhou to the north. There are jagged mountains in the northwest and chains of undulating hills in the middle, while the broad plains in the southeast and the meandering Mulan River, Yanshou River and Qiulu River also help constitute the typical Southern Chinese river-side scenery.

     

    Administrative division: Putian was called Xin-Hua and Xin-An in ancient times, and has always been an important political, economic and cultural center in Middle Fujian. The city now governs Xianyou County, Licheng District, Chengxiang District, Hanjiang District and Xiuyu District, with a land area covering 4,200 square kilometers and total population amounting to 3,230,000. There are more than 600,000 overseas Chinese, foreign citizens of Chinese origin, and Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan compatriots with Putian origin. Among them, there are 470,000 overseas Chinese and foreign citizens of Chinese origin, making Putian one of major hometowns of overseas Chinese in Fujian.

Guanghua Temple is one of four major Buddhist temples of Fujian, as well as one of "top 10 tourist resorts". The Sanqing Hall of Xuanmiao Abbey is one of the best preserved Taoist architectural complex built in Tang Dynasty. Furthermore, there are also a range of antique building relics as Southern Shaolin Temple, Guqiao Building of Song Dynasty, tomb of Cai Xiang, the relic of porcelain kiln and Puxi Town, the famous town for fighting against Japanese pirates in Ming Dynasty.
