Zhongyuan District (simplified Chinese: 中原区; traditional Chinese: 中原區; pinyin: Zhōngyuán Qū; literally: "central plain") is a district in the western part of the city of Zhengzhou, the capital of Henan Province, People's Republic of China. The city government is located in this district.

Zhongyuan is the second most populous district in Zhengzhou with a population of over 900,000.[when?] It is the city's industrial center especially in textiles, though many factories are closing and moving into more remote areas due to pollution. Zhengzhou University is located in the district as well as many of Henan's best middle schools.[citation needed] Zhongyuan is undergoing a construction boom though not as intense as the eastern area of the city.
