Wuyuan County (simplified Chinese: 婺源县; traditional Chinese: 婺源縣; pinyin: Wùyuán Xiàn) is a county in the northeast of Jiangxi province, People's Republic of China, bordering the provinces of Zhejiang to the east and Anhui to the north. It is under the jurisdiction of the prefecture-level city of Shangrao.
Wuyuan, on the boundary of three provinces in Jiangxi's northeastern corner, has a landscape dotted with strange caves, deep secluded rocks and numerous historic sites. Wuyuan County is home to some of the best-preserved ancient architecture in China. Wuyuan's structures were built in 740 during the Tang Dynasty, its remoteness and inconvenient transportation protecting its villages from too many visitors.
The population of the district was 334,020 in 2010.
The GDP of Wuyuan in 2011 is 5.622 billion yuan (RMB).
