Temple site honoring Liu Bei and others who lived in the early part of the fist millenium AD. The most impressive items are the two stone tablets near the entrance. The temple is located right next to Jinli Pedestrian Street.

Nice place. Rather big. With lovely bonsai garden. Unfortunately the main pavilion under renovation.

Not a palace but feels like one. Really a memorial and lovely grounds. Easy to get around and crowds are not too bad. Can do in an hour or less. Typical Chinese structures.

Have to know the history of Chengdu to understand all the memorial figure statues. There are so many and also a beautiful bonsai area. Some must be hundreds of years old. Alongside the temple complex is Jinli street which is worth walking down.

A place where they display and worship heroes of the ancient kingdom. It is better to know the history to appreciate who and why they worship some of them. The Chinese characters in each Hall are interesting and explain the origins of some of the...More

Lots of temple, museum and nature to see. It is one of the prettiest I have ever seen. Make sure it doesn't rain, because you can't do anything if it does... I recommend having a guide as there is lots of history and not everything...More

As far as I can remember, the site is pretty flat. There is the usual entrance step in front of each temple, as in any temple, and you will need help for these like anywhere else. But there are not the endless flights of... More

I have been to both street and agree that Wenshu street is less crowded and more relaxing to walk. It is also more nearer to the city centre by taxi. Well worth the visit.
