The 三賢祠 Sānxiáncí stands on Yuwangtai, Old Music Terrace, and was built to commemorate the meeting of three famous poets who visited here together and wrote poems, Li Bo, Du Fu and Gao Shi.

The 禹王臺 Yǔwángtái, also called the 古吹臺 Gúchuītái,, is on the south edge of Kaifeng, near the 繁塔 Buotǎ. It is a vibrant place today where local Kaifeng people gather to listen to Opera and vaudeville performances on two stages, one by the entrace to the park and the other on the Yuwangtai itself. The fame of this place goes back to thr Spring and Autumn period (770-481 B C) when a famous blind musician named 師曠 Shī Kuàng blew his flute here. In the Ming Dynasty, to pray for help from floods to Da Yu, the legendary emperor who harnessed the Huanghe, the name was changed to Yuwangtai.
