Wuhou Memorial Temple, Chengdu

3.8
#2 of 14 in Museums in Chengdu
Explore a vast holy site dedicated to an intelligent and noble state chancellor of Kingdom of Shu at Wuhou Memorial Temple. Erected posthumously in Zhuge Liang's honor, the 37,000 sq m (398,277 sq ft) temple consists of five sections running from south to north. As you enter the gate, notice how clay sculptures of the Shu-state Emperor and his ministers stand next to each other. Observe the giant stele deemed as the temple's most valuable relic, which contains writings made by historic figures including the chancellor Zhuge Liang himself. Many places of interest lie around the compound, which you can also visit via city's sightseeing bus.

  • Such a beautiful set of buildings with a wide range of things to see. This was a stunning example of ancient Chinese culture at its best and with information in English which was very helpful.  more »
  • This place is bigger and richer than I expected. There are many historical objects to see and many interesting corners to wonder into. We also enjoyed the gardens, the alley with pink walls and bamboo...  more »
  • Three video of the World plan (copy attack du Fu poem sentence: "Shu facies") a face to Ancient and modern Love (bad) (do not know who the dog tail continued marten? "The frequency multiplication" frequently is the auxiliary word adverb, "the encounter is the verb verb, cannot pair;" "Ancient and modern" two words are the opposite word, also cannot to "the world". And the alliance is meaningless!) Originally du Fu's battle is: three video of the world, two to open economic old Minister Heart (of course, Du Fu is too much good, simple to sentence if the cloud mud!) Why some people go to the change? Unless the alliance does not copy the poem from Du Fu, both the upper and lower leagues are new. The other third on the big door are not the same, sad can't bear to 覩, not to learn, it is degrading to be polite: the teacher's Watch (bad) is good for Liang (copy of Du Fu's poem), every read the teacher's Watch (bad) at sunset as a Liang (copy of Du Fu's poem) Two forms of pay three care (bad) one for the whole of the past, the history of the Victory of the Alliance, It's so ironic! Is there a shortage of poets in Sichuan who are proficient in classical poetry? In order to preserve the Scuting of the ancestral empire, wouldn't can play? Dr. Zhongping of Southern California

Where to stay in Chengdu

The vast majority of visitors to Chengdu look for their accommodations along Tianfu Avenue, the main arterial road that cuts the southern district of the modern city in two. Upmarket and standard hotels can be found along the road and its surrounding side streets, overlooking pleasant plazas and parks, or the river that snakes around to the east. Guesthouses and hostels throughout the south provide a welcome range of budget accommodations, but heading to the more built-up and residential northern area will reveal a greater amount of particularly cost-effective options.
