Wuchang was one of the three cities that merged into modern-day Wuhan, the capital of Hubei province, China. It stood on the right bank of the Yangtze River, opposite the mouth of the Han River. The two other sister towns, Hanyang and Hankou, were on the left bank, separated from each other by the Han. The Wuchang fish is named after the town. The name "Wuchang" remains in common use for the part of urban Wuhan south of the Yangtze River. Administratively, however, it is split between several districts of the City of Wuhan. The historic center of Wuchang lies within the modern Wuchang District, which has an area of 82.4 square kilometres and a population of 1,003,400. Other parts of what's colloquially known as Wuchang are within Hongshan District and Qingshan District.
