History Museum
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. Put Wuhou Memorial Temple on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Chengdu vacation builder.
