The Sketch Map of Liaoning Province



Liaoning is a northeastern province of China, which has an area of 58,300 sq mi (151,000 sq km). Its capital is Shenyang.
Liaoning’s one-character abbreviation is Liao. Liao is an ancient name for this region, which was adopted by the Liao Dynasty (Khitan Empire) which ruled this area between 907 and 1125. "Ning" means "peacefulness". The modern province was established in 1907 as Fengtian province and the name was changed to Liaoning in 1929. Under the Japanese puppet Manchukuo regime, the province reverted to its old name, but the name Liaoning was restored in 1945.
Administrative divisions
Liaoning is composed of fourteen prefecture-level cities:
• Shenyang

• Anshan
• Fushun
• Benxi
• Dandong
• Jinzhou
• Huludao
• Yingkou
• Panjin
