Located in the west of Zhejiang Province in the upper reaches of the Qiantang River, Quzhou has long been known as the thoroughfare to the four provinces, namely Zhejiang, Fujian, Jiangxi and Anhui.

As a nationally renowned historic and cultural city, Quzhou was built in Eastern Han Dynasty (AD 25-220).

Considered as the dwelling place of Confucius's descendant in South China, Quzhou has Confucius' South Zen Ancestral Temple, one of the only two Confucius ancestral temples in China.
