The Ancient Town is on a certain scale. It's divided into the south city and the east city. The plane surface of the city takes on the shape of a Chinese character "吕".  Because the Alamo River flows between the two cities, the ancient has been damaged.  A lot of residences and orchards have been built inside the town. Most of original buildings are destroyed.  The patches of pottery found inside or outside the Ancient Town are mainly Jiashahong and Grey pottery.
