Jingdezhen is situated in the northeast part of Jiangxi Province of East China formerly known as the "Porcelain Capital of China, is one of China's most famous cultural and historic cities.
Ever since the Eastern Jin Dynasty, with old names of Xinping and Fuliang, the seat of Jingdezhen was a town. People there began to produce ceramics as early as in the Eastern Han Dynasty. In the Jingdezhen reign of the Song Dynasty, Emperor Zhaoheng decreed to produce the porcelain used by the imperial court. From then on, people began to call this place as Jingdezhen. In the Ming Dynasty, Jingdezhen and other three towns, Zhuxianzhen in Henan Province, Hankouzhen in Hubei Province and Fushanzhen in Guangdong Province, were listed as the Top Four Towns of China.
The best porcelain of the world is in China, and China's best is in Jingdezhen, the Chinese writer Guo Moruo once said.
