Scope note
Pavilions in which winding grooves were chiseled into the stone slab flooring; flowing water was then diverted into the grooves. Guests invited to a banquet would place wooden or extremely thin chinaware cups of wine in the water and allow them to flow along the grooves. The person in front of whom a cup stopped would drink the wine and compose an impromptu poem.
