The region of existing Jinan has, in actual sense, played a significant role with regards to history of the city; right from the most primitive stages of civilization. Moreover, it has led to the evolution of an economic, administrative, and ‘transportation hub’ of prime importance.
Jinan lies on north-western side of Shandong. Furthermore, it goes on to border Liaocheng towards the south western side, Dezhou towards the north western side, Zibo towards the eastern side, Tai’an towards the southern side, Laiwu towards the south eastern side, and Binzhou towards the northeastern side.
The name ‘Jinan’ literally means ‘south of the Ji (waters)’ and refers to age-old Ji River which flowed in the northern side of this city. However, the year 1852 marked the disappearance of River Ji; when Yellow River went on to change its course ‘northwards’; thereby taking over bed of Ji River.
Jinan is rainless and dry in spring, rainy and hot in summer, cold and dry in winter, and crisp; as far as autumn is concerned.
