It is located on the northern bank of the Yangtze River, and is the southernmost part of Taizhou City, bordering Nantong to the north-east, Suzhou to the south-east, Wuxi to the south, Changzhou to the south-west, and Zhenjiang to the west.

History The terrain of Jingjiang nowadays was originated as a shoal in the Yangtze River, which was known Matuosha in the ancient China. As the shoal had been extended, it was separated from then Jiangyin county to found a new county in 1471. As being looted by the Wokou for several time, it is designated Jiangjiang (means "pacifying the Yangtze River").

The county under the administration of the prefecture-level city of Yangzhou originally, was converted to a county-level city in 1993, then was transferred to the Taizhou in 1996.

Geography The Yangtze had split into the north and the south distributaries at Jingjiang, but the city merged into the north bank later than the 1610s inasmuch as the north distributary was filled in by continued deposition.
