History[edit] Jintan, known as Jinshan (金山) in ancient times, was a township of Yanling commandery since the reign of the Emperor Yuan of Jin. Then it was promoted by its inhabitants as Jinshan county to strengthen the local vigilance in the end of the Sui, without permission. So the Tang government restored that soon. As a densely populated area, the county was reestablished in about 688, but since there was a namesake in present-day Jinhua
Jinhua
of Zhejiang, it was named after Jintan, also a hill of Mountain Mao.[1][2] Location[edit] On November 10, 1993, Jintan was reclassified from a county and officially became a city. In 1987, the County comprised 22 towns, with the county government located in Jincheng

^ New Book of Tang. 41. "金壇,緊。本曲阿縣地。隋末,土人保聚,因為金山縣。隋亡,沈法興又置琅琊縣,李子通以琅琊置茅州,以金山隸之。賊平,因之,後隸蔣州。武德八年省入延陵。垂拱四年復置,來屬,更名"; 太平寰宇記 [Gazetteer of the World during the Taiping Period]. 80. "垂拱四年,以人物繁廣復立金山縣。又以東陽郡已有金山縣,故改名金壇。取邑界句曲之山、金壇之陵以為號。按河圖云,乃有「地肺土良水清句曲之山金壇之陵」" ^ The name of Jintan supposedly derives from a huge altar inside a cave on Mountain Mao. According to one account, the altar was golden, thus it was designated "Golden Altar". In another account, the altar was named after a hill nearby, Jijin(積金山), and abbreviated to Jintan. See 茅山志 [Gazetteer of Mountain Mao]. 6.
