I didn't find anything interesting or unique about Wuhou Temple. I found it too busy and noisy. It is by Jinli and the Tibetan Quarter so these sights can be combined into a half day. I preferred the quieter atmosphere of Wenshu Temple.

very large temple grounds in the middle of the city. Very quiet and quaint walk. When you are done be sure to go to the pedestrian street just right of the entrance for great street food.

This is a must visit for a history person. It costs 60 rmb for an adult. You can find many statues of famous historical personality from the Three Kingdom. The site is just next to Jinli pedestrian street.

This shrine is dedicated to Zhuge Liang and Liu Bei of the Shu kingdom during the Han Dynasty. There are many shrines to various Generals of the Shu kingdom, but no more so than those of Liu Bei, Guan Yu, Zhang Fei and Zhuge Liang. Liu Bei was the leader of the Shu Kingdom and was loved by all the... More

A well laid historical site with a good variety of attractions within site. Busy so hard to move quickly through site. But none the less, I found this site interesting.

Wuhou Memorial Temple is a place you may want to visit when you stop by Chengdu IF you are a person who love history. This place is unique and special. However the entre fee is at high side considering the area of it. So you may want to check your time and budget before you go for it.

Not only a lot of history to discover but also a great location for a Sunday stroll. Jingli road is right next door.

This is a huge complex of buildings, which although aren't the best looking ones I've seen in Chengdu, they do have some nice traditional features. The grounds are lovely, in particular the bonzi trees. Thre are also some nice souvenirs at reasonable prices. Lots of incense being burned as is common. A nice place to wander around for an hour...

This is a shrine to an old emperor and, in typical Chinese style, goes from courtyard, to courtyard, to courtyard and is an oasis of calm in the hustle and bustle of the city outside. There are lots of interesting exhibits in the rooms off the courtyards.

At a whopping ¥60, one would expect a little more of the monastery. Sure, it is set amongst some nice gardens and the buildings themselves are well-restored but these are all hardly worth the admission price. If you're into Chinese folklore, this price tag might be a little more justified since the monastery also boasts a collection of mythical Chinese... More
