Interesting and worth a visit

Interesting to look round the temple complex. We used an audio guide to get the history which I would recommend.

Quite interesting, worth a quick visit but we much preferred the Wenshou Temple and surrounding area which is much less crowded and touristy. If you walk all the way through it you will come out into the very touristy Jinli Street Pedestrian area. The more interesting (to us) Tibetan area is further up the road on the left and is... More

if you have seen one solid Chinese temple, then you can skip this one. It's more of the same thing and without an in depth understanding of chinese history, it's hard to appreciate this one any more than others.

For a foreigner not more than a well kept park with some stone tablets, archways and exhibition pavilions. Nothing exciting if one does not know the history of the three kingdoms, Warring States. Steep entrance fee, crowded. Popular attraction, though most Chinese just have their photo taken at the entrance instead of paying to enter the place. Most treat it... More

We found this a most interesting place and were grateful for the explanations in English on some of the boards. We came away resolved to learn more about Chinese history.

I visit this temple every time I visit Chengdu. It's crowded these days but getting away from the crowds can be easy. If you're a fan of the Shu Han kingdom of the 3 kingdoms era, then this place is a must see. It's devoted to Zhuge Liang, or Minister Wu as he's known here, and the oath brothers Liu... More

There is almost no information on all of the statues. And my knowledge of Chinese history is definitely lacking so all of that was definitely lost on me. Didnt want to spend more money on top of the 60Y entry fee so I didn't spring for the audio recording but in hindsight I kinda wished I had. But I honestly... More

The architecture is beautiful and the exhibits are a bit overwhelming. To fully appreciate, you will need to know the history of Chengdu and the historical context of the various heroes depicted in this attraction. It is difficult to just walk through and just read the descriptions for the exhibits; probably getting the audio tour would be better for appreciation.
