Hongze Lake (Chinese: 洪澤湖; pinyin: Hóngzé Hú) is in Jiangsu Province, China
China
and is encompassed by the prefecture-level cities Suqian
Suqian
( Sihong County
Sihong County
and Siyang County) and Huai'an
Huai'an
( Xuyi County
Xuyi County
and Hongze County). Lake Hongze is the fourth largest freshwater lake in China. Lake Hongze has quadrupled in size since the 12th century.[citation needed] A particularly large change happened in 1680, when the Yellow River changed its course and merged with the Huai River. Heavy sediment from the Yellow River
Yellow River
blocked the Huai River; the diverted water created Hongze Lake as we know it today. The city of Sizhou was completely submerged, as was the nearby Ming Ancestors Mausoleum. The latter was rediscovered only in the 1960s.[1] References[edit]
