Incredibly busy and very small
Jul 2021 • Solo
Temples in China can be busy, but this was a whole new level! Very small area for so many people to be. They only take cash at the manned ticket desk (I mean who carries cash in China?!). But there are electronic ticket stalls you can use to pay with Wechat / Alipay around the other side. Lots of pushing and shoving to get in, as they have 1 bag scanner and 6 lines of people trying to use it. Walking around felt chaotic, not calm and peaceful as a temple should be. There were some fairly impressive statues, but unable to understand the context as not much information given or viewable with so many people. Walk through to the other side and it brings you out on Jinli pedestrian street.

Famous historical temple
Apr 2021
It is a ancient temple or shrine to memorize Zhuguliang and Liubei of Three Kingdoms period in ancient China. You'd better hire a guide to explain the history and stories about it. Ticket is 60 CNY. It is recommended for a morning visit. Good experience to stroll around. There are many flowers and plants. Cool in summer.

enjoyed this quiet area
Apr 2021
Nice place, which wasn't even in the afternoon crowded. Like a maze where we could go again several times before having seen every corners and places. Really worth it to go there and just let your feet go without special aim.

One of the most photographed places in Chengdu
Apr 2021
Great area to spend time in Chengdu. Jinli street is nearby, there's tranquil areas, ponds, birds, teahouses to see and the shrine / temple as the highlight. Lots of history and we spent roughly 2 hours in the park. Should definitely be on your list when in Chengdu!

A trip to Wuhou Memorial Memorial Temple
Dec 2020 • Friends
This is one of the best things that you need to do when you arrived in Chengdu, come and visit this museum. A historical place and beautiful information provided in 4 languages (Chinese, English, Japanese, and Korean). If you have some difficulty, you can use Baidu translate

A respite in a bustling city
Nov 2019
This is a beautifully restored temple and grounds. We visited in November but I expect the gardens are spectacular in spring, summer and fall. This is a calming place--very serene. If you are a senior, ask for the senior discount.

The collection of 400-year-old+ bonsai trees is outstanding
Oct 2019
The tomb and temples are attractive, and the stele calligraphy admirable, but the grounds tend to be crowded with domestic tourists, who combine it with the now disappointing Jinli Alley (where sadly most of the exotic food stands have been replaced with souvenir stands and the street is now characterized by a huge Starbucks). Visit Wuhou Temple, however, for its collection of bonsai trees, which is absolutely wonderful. More than a hundred of them, each tastefully displayed on rock platforms, dozens of species, including many gingko. A rare aesthetic experience worth hours of appreciation.

Great place if you are interested in Chinese history during the “Three Kingdoms” period
Sep 2019 • Friends
This was not originally on my tour itinerary. However, when my tour guide met me and realised I might be more interested in history than just another regular temple, she recommended this place and I agreed. I found the tour of this Wuhou Memorial Temple most rewarding. The main reason was that I was interested in the very famous historical novel “Three Kingdoms” which most Chinese would know, and also the actual true (non dramatised) history. This place (and the specialist Temple guide) taught me a lot.
I might find this place particularly interesting given I am an Australian/Hong-Kong Chinese. However, I do hope international tourists will find it interesting to understand something about a very interesting period in Chinese history.
And of course it is right next to Jinli Street so you could kill two birds with one stone.

Cool place.

Pretty cool park, nicely kept, good environment. The tomb is a let down as it’s just a hill with rocks around it, but the park as a whole is neat to see. Also, they only take cash, no wechat or Alipay.

working temple
Sep 2019 • Couples
This is a working temple but has tourist trap out front. It has a vegetarian restaurant which is a plus for me. The architecture was mostly preserved from major damage in the Red Guard Era. If you walk the streets you will notice that most of the shops have Tibetan then Hanyu then some have English signage. This completes the atmosphere of Tibetan Buddhism. Remember that Chengdu was once a part of the Greater Tibetan Empire.
