戲馬台 Xima Terrace
Xima terrace is one of the earliest historic sites in Xuzhou. In 206 BC, the great hero, General Xiang Yu (232BC-202BC) crowned himself King of Xichu and chose Pencheng ( the original name of Xuzhou) as the capital. For horse sports and to inspect soldiers drilling he had a terrace constructed, which was later named Xima Terrace (horse sporting terrace).|
On the terrace, some buildings were constructed, including Magistrate Temple, Three Righteous Temple, Jukuishan House, and Stele Pavilion. After renovation, Xima Terrace became a tourist attraction with red walls, yellow tiles, carved beams and painted pillars.
