Ye County or Yexian (simplified Chinese: 叶县; traditional Chinese: 葉縣; pinyin: Yè Xiàn) is a county under the administration of the prefecture-level city of Pingdingshan, Henan province, China, with a population of 820,000.[when?]
The ancient town of Kunyang was located in Ye County. It was the site of the critical Battle of Kunyang, in which the Han forces decisively defeated the army of Wang Mang's Xin Dynasty. The ancient city of Ye was the origin of the common Chinese surname Ye (叶/葉).
As 2012, this county is divided to 5 towns, 12 townships and 1 ethic townships.
Kunyang is home to China's No. 1 Prison of Women of Yunan where the Chinese Christians, Ju Dianghong and Liang Qin are serving sentences of 13 years and 10 years respectively for their Christian activities.
