An exhibition featuring China's newly elected UNESCO World Heritage site, the Archaeological Ruins of Liangzhu City, opened at the Palace Museum in Beijing Tuesday.

The exhibition, titled "Liangzhu and Ancient China: The 5,000-Year Civilization Demonstrated by Jades," will showcase a total of 260 items.

A variety of jade objects, such as cong (jade tubes with quadrilateral exteriors), bi(jade disks), and yue (axe-shaped jade) will be displayed, as jade contains the essence of Liangzhu civilization.

With four parts, the exhibition aims to reflect features of an early regional state of Liangzhu civilization and its influence on later culture, as well as explain the significance of Liangzhu to the Chinese civilization.

The exhibition, which runs until Oct. 20, will also introduce the archaeological works of the ruins and the process of application for the ruins to gain World Heritage status.
