Dachang Hui Autonomous County (simplified Chinese: 大厂回族自治县; traditional Chinese: 大廠回族自治縣; pinyin: Dàchǎng Huízú Zìzhìxiàn; Xiao'erjing: دَاچْا خُوِذُو ذِجِشِیًا) is a Hui autonomous county of Hebei province. It is under the administration of Langfang prefecture-level city, and was established in 1955. The Hui Muslim county of Dachang was subjected to slaughter by the Japanese in the Second Sino-Japanese War.[1]

Together with Sanhe City, and Xianghe County, it forms the Northern Three Counties of Langfang, an exclave of Hebei province surrounded by the municipalities of Beijing and Tianjin, and itself borders Beijing to the west.

A Dachang Hui Imam, Ma Zhenwu, wrote a Qur'an translation into Chinese including Chinese characters and Xiao'erjing.[2]

Administrative divisions[edit]

The county administers 3 towns and 2 townships,[3] which are further divided into a total of 105 village-level divisions.
