In 1862, the 1st year of Emperor Tongzhi's reign period in the Qing Dynasty, when a road was built from the international settlement to the Jingan Temple, it was named Jingan Road (present-day Nanjing Xilu). In the following century, owing to its convernient location, a transportation network was formed centering around the Jingan Temple which became the starting point of the urbanization process in western Shanghai.
