Web Resources for Ji’an, PRC

By | April 08, 2011 | No Comments

Ji’an is best known as the site of some very important Koguryo tombs.  In the modern era, it was a major pipeline for Chinese military intervention into the Korean War in 1950 and is an important node in the event that China would wish to intervene again in Korea.

You can find Ji’an here on this map or navigate there (it is in Jilin province) via Google Maps.

Ji’an is a small city and is extremely remote, which is why foreign journalists only visit there rarely.  For images of Ji’an including a bridge to North Korea as well as the Koguryo tombs, this Flickr stream is tremendous.
