Have been there for 3 times in 20+ years. It's getting more crowded, but the place is simply attractive as usual. If you love Chinese history or just the novel Three Kingdom, or even just the movie Red Cliff, this place's worth a visit. Although if you don't really know much about Chinese historical stories but just want to see... More

It's a place that you can know everything about the Three Kingdom. I didn't really understand the Mandarin that he spoke, hence I didn't enjoy the trip. There are plenty of sculptures and history in the temple explaining everything about it.

Very pretty and well maintained grounds. For a non chinese person however I'm a little overwhelmed with the various temples and I think a little more familiarity on my part would have made my visit more interesting. The location however is great. A 1/2 block of Jin li street and across an intersection from the Tibetan area.

The Wuhou Temple is a short walk from the Wuhou metro stop and you quickly find yourself immersed in a traditional working temple environment. The need to be respectful to all is obvious by the people coming in to pray and offer flowers. The temple is free to visit and most areas are open to visitors, with a school style... More

I really enjoyed our visit to this working monastery. It is extremely easy to find form the nearby Metro station (just head for the large arch, then keep to pink wall to your left and within a couple of minutes you are there) There is no charge and few rules to be aware of. The obvious "rules" being respect others... More

The Wuhou Memorial Temple is slightly different than some of the Buddhist temples in the city. The Memorial is dedicated to a period of Chinese history when three different kingdoms united. So this is really more a memorial to the different men who made that peace possible. I have been to Wuhou a couple of times in my stay in... More

I thought it was a peaceful, beautiful, and welcome respite from the big city, and nice rest from the fair next door. Get a map, photo the maps on displays, to see how to enjoy it without spending too much time in mazes.

Another Temple I hear you say !!! well this one also has nice gardens and and lots of different artifacts to see and photograph, and is very popular with the Chinese people. It's well worth at least an hour or more of your time, depending what time of day you visit.

Lots of stories written on plaques beside the famous figures who appeared in the Romance of the Three Kingdoms. There were descriptions of their brave feats as well as their contributions to the war going on at that time.

Beautiful surroundings, gardens and ponds, peaceful environment, typical temple landscaping. If you are not into the Three Kingdoms story, this is just another temple in China. Easily accessible, worth a visit and a stroll for an hour or two. But you will certainly gain more from the Jinli street which is located a few meters away.
