Located on the banks of the Huan River in central China's Henan Province, the Yin Ruins, relics of the ancient capital of late Shang Dynasty (1600-1046BC), includes mausoleum ruins from the Shang Dynasty, and palace, temple and Huanbei Shang City ruins. Scientific excavation of the Yin Ruins began in 1928, unearthing a large number of construction relics and cultural heritage such as inscriptions on bones or tortoise shells, bronze and jade. They not only reflected the development level and productivity of the Shang Dynasty but also provided important basis for the study of rituals, lifestyle and civilization in that period.

The Yin Ruins were listed among national priority cultural relic protection sites in 1961, and a World Cultural Heritage site by UNESCO in 2006.

In accordance, China National Philatelic Corp. will issue a FDC and commemorative postmark.
