As the Porcelain Capital of China, Jingdezhen is the home for several ruins of ancient porcelain.

Huangnitou Ancient Kiln
This ancient kiln is located behind the hill in Huangnitou Primary School, the most representative kiln from Five Dynasties to Northern Song Dynasty. The site is well-preserved with plentiful porcelains. The porcelain accumulation is as large as 5,000 square meters with two piles, east and west with height of more than 10 meters. East pile is dominated by relics in the Five Dynasties including green-glazed porcelain and white glazed porcelain. While west pile is dominated by relics in the Northern Dynasty including bluish white ware.

Gushi Street Ancient Kiln
Gushi Street Ancient Kiln is located in Nanshi Street, 1 kilometer away from Liujia Bay. The kiln is composed of four accumulation sections .First one is located in the Northwester of Lion hill; second one is between Nanshi Primary School to Reservoir; the third one is near the stream, 200 meters away from second section; and the fourth one is at the end of village. The total area amount to 10,000 square meters. The relics range from the Five Dynasties to Early Yuan Dynasty. They are delicate with crystal glaze liquid.

Yangmei Pavilion Ancient Kiln
Yangmei Pavilion is also called Shengmei Pavilion. It is located by the bank of Nanhe river, southeaster suburb of Jingdezhen, 6 kilometers away from the downtown. The kiln was first used in the Five Dynasties and ended in mid Song Dynasty. In 1959, it was listed as a major cultural relic under provincial protection. White porcelain made in Yangmei Kiln is exquisite and delicate. No formal archaeological excavation has been done in the kiln yet. But the research in recent years shows this kiln has far-reaching impact on porcelain-making in Song, Ming and Qing Dynasties. The kiln is located behind the courtyard of the village and extended to surrounding areas. It is 20 meters long from south to east, and 250 meters long from south to north, covering an area of 5,000 square meters. Porcelain clips and tools in accumulation formation are scattered in every corner of the village.
