The 30 degree North Latitude runs through the four ancient civilizations: ancient Babylon, Egypt, India, and China. The geographical location of Liangzhu culture makes it another 30° North Latitude wonder of the ancient Chinese civilization.

Northeast corner: N 30°24'48", E 120°00'17"

Northwest corner: N 30°24'41", E 119°58'58"

Southeast corner: N 30°23'20", E 120 00'19"

Southwest corner: N 30°22'55", E 119°58'28"

The Liangzhu Ancient City is an early state with urban civilization in the Neolithic Age around the Lake Taihu in the lower reaches of Yangtze River. The ruins of Liangzhu Ancient City have been preserved genuinely and completely. The declaration of Liangzhu Ancient site as a world cultural heritage would fill the vacancy in the Neolithic urban archaeological site of the World Heritage Site List in East Asia and provide unique evidence for the history of civilization in China for more than 5,000 years.
