Kaifeng Yuwang Temple Fair

The temple fair always displays a scene of bustle and excitement, as a large Yuwang (Yuwang is a king in Chinese mythology) ritual is being held. There will be a magnificent scene, fake emperors and queens of Tang, Song, Yuan, Ming and Qing dynasties, and fake officials of military and civility all dressed in costumes worshipping Yuwang (the great king in mythology who successfully controlled floods). A variety of performances like magic shows, Sichuan opera face changing show and other folk art shows, are fantastic to take part in, as well as local snacks markets.
