Jiangxia District (simplified Chinese: 江夏区; traditional Chinese: 江夏區; pinyin: Jiāngxià Qū) is one of the administrative districts of the city of Wuhan, People's Republic of China. Jiangxia district has an area of 2,009 square kilometres (776 sq mi) and a population of 680,000.
Unlike most other districts into which the City of Wuhan is divided, Jingxia includes no part of Wuhan's main urban core. It is entirely located in the rural area south of the Wuhan city center. Jingxia has its own urban core, which is a large town some 20 kilometres (12 mi) south of Wuhan proper.
The Wulongquan East Railway Station (presently, no passenger service) of the Wuhan-Guangzhou High-speed Railway is located within the district. The Wuhan–Xianning Intercity Railway, to open in the late 2013, will have several stations throughout the district.
