Ruzhou (Chinese: 汝州; pinyin: Rǔzhōu) is a county-level city in the west-central part of Henan province, China, and is under the administration of Pingdingshan. It was called Linru County (simplified Chinese: 临汝县; traditional Chinese: 臨汝縣; pinyin: Línrǔ Xiàn) until 1988. It has more than 100,000 inhabitants. The Fengxue Temple of Ruzhou features the Qizu Pagoda, built in 738 during the Tang Dynasty (618–907).

The town is best well-known for the porcelain made there in the Song Dynasty period.[1]
