The Han Dynasty affixed the Nanyue Kingdom to its empire in 111 BC throughout the realm's development southward. This is when Guangzhou or Panyu as it was then called turned into a common capital and remains so to this day and age. In 226 AD, the city of Panyu turned into the seat of Guang Prefecture. While initially alluding to the prefecture alone, natives in the neighborhood slowly received the custom of utilizing the same name for their city.

Despite the fact that Guangzhou supplanted Panyu as the name of the walled city, Panyu was still the name of the encompassing region until the dissolution of the Qing Dynasty. Today, the ancient lands of Panyu is an area of Guangzhou lying south of Haizhu District differentiated from whatever is left of the city by the Pearl River.
