About Terrace of Five Grains

The Terrace of Five Grains is located in Huaiyang County in the city of Zhoukou of Henan Province. According to the legend, this is where the Yan Emperor (the Flame Emperor), a legendary ancient Chinese ruler in predynastic times, instructed the farmers how to plant the five grains. The Yan Emperor classified grains into five categories, including rice, millet, wheat and others, and had people planting them in the area along the Yellow River and Huaihe River to feed themselves. It marked a significant turn in the history. In memory of the Yan Emporor, the later generations built up this Terrace of Five Grains in Huaiyang, with a statue of him standing on the terrace.
