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.

So, my knowledge of the Three Kingdoms is very limited, which makes the statues, and relationship of the people to them, not so interesting for me. It's a 60rmb entry fee (free under 6). The gardens, ponds, bonsai, and temple architecture are nice enough for a walkabout for 2 hours or so end to end. The main entrance is mayhem.... More

There are oversized status of soldiers and diplomats from 225ad. It's like a memorial to them. You can read about their life and death...most fought to the death.

The temple is beautiful and thrives with active worshipers. There are some great dumpling restaurants in the area. It's worth the trip.
