The Archaeological Ruins of Liangzhu City in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province dates back 5,300 years. It was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2019.

It covers a vast area of nearly 34 square kilometers and features more than 50 sites around the Mojiao Mountain site, including villages, tombs and altars from which a great number of delicate jade wares have been unearthed. These discoveries are among the most powerful pieces of evidence proving the 5,000 years of the history of Chinese civilization.
