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.

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.
