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.
