Dragon Pearl Pavilion---Jingdezhen Imperial Ceramic MuseumDragon Pearl Pavilion---Jingdezhen Imperial Ceramic Museum

Dragon pearl Pavilion is located at the top of Mount pearl. It was built in Tang Dynasty, but it was destroyed and restored for several times. The current Dragon Pearl Pavilion was built after 1987, which is Ming-style double-eaved palace building with six floors. The pavilion is 34.5 meters high and covers an area of 1,650 square meters. Beneath the tower are the sites where precious ancient porcelains relics are found. Since the Ming Dynasty, Dragon Pearl Pavilion has long been representative building of imperial plants and kilns then. Now it becomes an important landmark of Jingdezhen.

The pavilion is imposing structure of red bricks with upturned double-eaved roofs covered by yellow glazed files. There are two exhibitions in the pavilion, one is associated with the history of imperial kiln and factory, and the other is associated with imperial porcelains restored by Ancient Porcelains Research Institute. The porcelains on display have great significance in the research on imperial kilns in Jingdezhen. As imperial ancient cite and modern porcelains exhibition hall, Dragon Pearl Pavilion has been the focus of porcelains lover from home and abroad. There is also a Dragon Pearl Pavilion in Seto, a city in Japan which is known for porcelains products. The pavilion is a vivid imitation of that in Jingdezhen. This reflects the impact of Jingdezhen Porcelains Culture on other Asian countries.

All porcelains showed in Dragon Pearl Pavilion are broken ones. These porcelains made by imperial kilns for the Court were destroyed for variety of reasons. All of them will be destroyed by designated staff in a location in case they would be accessible to the public. The relics unearthed in the pavilion were restored by experts. Although they are faulty to some extent, we can still see exquisite craftsmanship and delicate design, no to mention those offered to the Royal family.
