The Furnace is located at the left side of the Front Hall. It is an ancient furnace to burn used silks and booklets of the Front Hall.

The signboard was written as:

"This was built in the Ming Dynasty to burn silk and booklets used at the Sacrificial Hall and its west side chamber. The whole furnace made of quality and firm plain white glaze articles is modeled on a wooden structure, with a single-eave gable and hip roof paved with curved tiles, a bracket architrave beneath the eaves, and a round column at each of the four corners. The furnace door is adorned with carved ribbon patterns, and the other three sides have carved rhombus patterns. Under the furnace is an exquisitely carved sumeru base."
