Located on East Fanta Street in the southern outskirts of Kaifeng City, Yuwang Temple was first built in the Ming Dynasty to commemorate Da Yu, and was rebuilt in the Kang Xi Period of the Qing Dynasty. Tradition has that Da Yu once lived here when he was regulating and controlling the Yellow River. The temple consists of five main halls, towering and lofty. In the Yuwang Hall, there stands a sculptured statue of Da Yu with three huge delicate pictures engraved on both sides of the brick walls depicting Da Yu "Controlling the River", "Awarding" and "Plowing". These pictures vividly mirror the contribution, merits and virtues of Da Yu.
It is said that the great musician named Shikuang of the Jin Kingdom, during the Spring and Autumn Period, once played music here, so it is also called Ancient Blowing Temple (Guchui tai) for the memory of this significant blind musician. In the two subsidiary halls, statues of Li Bai, Du Fu and Gao Shi, the three eminent and time-honored poets in ancient China, are kept. In the eastern yard of the temple, the Three Talent Ancestral Hall was built in memory of these three poets. Opposite the Three Talent Ancestral Hall is the Shuide Hall (Hall for the River Controlling Heroes) built to commemorate the thirty-seven pioneers who devoted themselves to regulating and controlling the Yellow River in history.
