Located in the central coastal area of Fujian province, Putian has been a crucial commercial hub boasting an excellent geographical location and many admirable harbors, since ancient time.

The city marched towards prosperity in Song dynasty, with a large number of its goods like porcelain exported to the rest of the world.

Putian is also known as the hometown of Mazu, a Chinese sea goddess, who is said to protect sailors and fishermen. Mazu culture and belief, originated from Putian, have now been widely spread and accepted by people home and abroad. 

In April last year, Putian joined China's 26-city Alliance which pledged to protect heritage of the ancient Maritime Silk Road (MSR) and seek designation for it on the UNESCO cultural heritage list.
