We were here for the Chengdu Temple Fair on Chinese New Year's eve, so this review is sort of biased in that way. The whole shrine area is lit up with beautiful lanterns and the decorated with glowing structures. The whole fair is a great way to spend your Chinese New Year in the city as many people have gathered... More

This place is often presented as obligatory, but after visiting both I and my Chinese companion were kind of let down. Don't go expecting anything much, and you probably won't be let down. It costs 60 RMB, and though it is a piece of really cool history, very little of that history is explained in either Chinese or English. Might... More

Our guide suggested we walk through the grounds and we are so pleased that she did. The grounds are really beautiful and so well maintained. The monks live and worship at the temple. There wasn't any entry fee but you can make a donation. Very peaceful and well worth a visit. You can then stroll around the 'old town stores'.

Nice shrine with beautiful park around near the JinLi "old" street. Some info displayed on the three kingdoms history.

I heard good and bad things about that Temple before I visited it. Its most likely to be the most popular temple in Chengdu, which you will notice in the price. Its 60rmb and they don't even want to give student discount (at least not to me although I have a chinese student ID card). Right now, there is lots... More

It's more of a memorial hall than temple of the historical character Zhugei Liang, Liu Bei, Guan Yu and Zhang Fei of the 3 Kingdom. It's quite interesting to know abit more concise history of the few main characters. It's advisable to rent the audio aid to understand the entire place better (Cost rmb 20, deposit rmb 200). Alternatively if... More

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.
