Yue Kiln Sites at Shanglin Lake

The Yue Kiln Sites at Shanglin Lake are located in the hilly regions of the Cuiping Mountain in the central-southern part of Cixi City, in Zhejiang Province.They are divided into 4 areas the Shanglin Lake, the Ancient Yinding Lake, the Baiyang Lake and the Liduhu Lake. Nearly 200 kiln sites have been found here so far, and 179 of those have been numbered. There is a dense distribution of 115 kiln sites, just within the area surrounding the Shanglin Lake.

The Yue Kiln Sites at Shanglin Lake are large group of ancient large-scale kiln sites developed during the 2nd to 12thCentury CE. They are well-preserved kiln sites with densely distributed relics, showing the entire history of the Yue Kilns from their initial start-up, growth, prosperity, and their decline. This area is known as the "Open-air Celadon Museum". 

The Shanglin Lake area was the center of Yue Kiln celadon during the Tang and Song Dynasties. The secret colored porcelain produced here represented the highest skill and achievement of the Tang and Song Dynasty porcelain. The " Kiln for tributes " was established during the late Tang Dynasty, and the "Kiln Service " was established during the Five Dynasties, which specialized in productionof porcelain used in rituals. 

The exquisite Yue Kiln celadon produced along Shanglin Lake was not only used to cater to domestic demand, but also served as one of the earliest commodities to be exported overseas through the "Maritime Silk Road", promoting communication and amalgamation  between the Chinese and western culture.
