We reached this temple by accident as we knew nothing of it, but we were glad we stumbled upon it, eventually. The temple was beautiful and serene (which was so contrasted by the nearby chaotic streets of Chengdu). We participated in a small ceremony that was there, which was just lovely.

As most temples and memorial sites in China they are very well kept and respected place. After you pay to get in then you enter a very large square where you can go in different directions and see burial sites, sacred Stones and much more. This is alleged to be the final resting place of Liu Bei, the famed emperor... More

Beautiful surroundings for a walk and take in the lovely buildings. Craziness all around so it's quite special. Lots of history, culture and time to reflect.

Wuhou, or Geliang Zhu was one of the most famous people in Chinese history. He was considered as most intelligent people in Chinese history. He had a lot of legend stories. Actually it is a temple for the empire as well. Why both Geliang Zhu and the empire shared one temple? You'd better to find the answer in your visiting.

We visited around 1pm and found that it was fairly quiet. There are lots of places to sit and relax and enjoy the scenery. The bonsai garden was the highlight for us, although we did enjoy seeing all the temples and statues. Entrance cost ¥60pp which we thought was a little expensive, but it was a very nice place to...

Personally felt not much is to expect for this historic site as its a memorial temple however it will be much meaningful for those who wants to know more over the history. Its a small garden with a few statues and write ups in the temple. At the same time you can visit the Jin Li street market and food... More

Wow. Pleasantly surprised. Living in a city without much personal space or greenery, I came here with friends reluctant to be too optimistic to avoid being let down. Frankly, from the 100 yards of leaving the taxi and walking into the temple, it was like entering a different universe. The place isn't bombarded with people and the cultural/spiritual observations were... More

Lots of statues of the heroes in the Three Kingdoms period with simple descriptions of them. There is a small gallery/museum showcasing some chinese historical exhibits. Tickets are a bit pricey for such a small area (RMB 60).

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

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