Jiugong (simplified Chinese: 旧宫地区; traditional Chinese: 舊宮地區; pinyin: Jiùgōng Dìqū; literally: "old palace") is a town, more precisely area, in northern Daxing District, Beijing,[1] located just inside the 5th Ring Road. As of 2011, it had 24 residential communities (社区) and 19 villages under its administration.[2]

History[edit]

From 1913 to 1949, it was part of Daxing County, and after the establishment of the People's Republic transferred to Nanyuan District, then established as a township in 1953; five years later Jiugong Township was returned to Daxing County but under the guise of Hongxing People's Commune (红星人民公社). In 1983, the commune was abolished and Jiugong was upgraded to a town in 1990.[3]
