Located at the juncture of the Changhe and the Xihe rivers in downtown Jingdezhen, the ancient street has 136 structures, including housing, shops, temples, archways, and roads, all in the Ming and Qing dynasties. The roads were laid with stones and the walls with bricks.
Also called the Pintao Zhai, this is one of what should eventually be a series of restored Ming-era merchants' houses demonstrating the wetitleh generated by imperial and private kilns. This sturdy mansion, with its brown pillars and black beams with gold trim, was originally constructed sometime between 1435 and 1449, and contains a small exhibition of photographs of the local area.
