Nestling in the glorious civilization of the same name, the Liangzhu Site is mainly located around Taihu Lake on the lower reaches of the Yangtze River, and was home to the peak of the local Neolithic culture. Its history can be traced back 5000 years. 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 five-thousand years of the history of Chinese civilization.
Sticking to the scientific planning idea, the site park has worked out a distinctive “Liangzhu Mode” that balances protection, preservation and utilization of cultural and natural resources. Meanwhile, the park is also home to a cultural landscape axle stretching from the Liangzhu Museum to the core Liangzhu ancient city zone that is considered one of the paragons of the early urban civilization of East Asia.
