Interesting facts about this location
The Suzhou District (Chinese: 肃州区, Suzhou Qu) is an administrative district in Gansu, the People's Republic of China. It is one of 17 districts of Gansu. Suzhou District is part of the Jiuquan prefecture, and the seat of the prefecture government. Therefore, less-detailed modern maps typically mark Suzhou's location simply as "Jiuquan". However, for many centuries Suzhou was an important city in its own right.

Jiayuguan or Jiayu Pass is the first pass at the west end of the Great Wall of China, near the city of Jiayuguan in Gansu province. It has also been called "Jiayuguan Pass"; however, this form is redundant since "guan" means "pass" in Chinese. Along with Juyongguan and Shanhaiguan, it is one of the main passes of the Great Wall.
