Quiet place

Quiet place with a very well laid out garden. Water streams and well laid out trees that are fully grown. The best part is the bonsai garden and you can see excellent bonsais.

The temple is just one of many located in Nanjao Park, to the south west of the maiin city centre. It's a pricey entry fee (60CNY) for really very little, but I found arriving around 5-5:30PM made the heat less intense and the atmosphere cooler too. There's a lot to see,not just the many temples and pagodas, but also the... More

There is quite a bit of walking around here and the heat really put me off. I couldn't enjoy it as much. Also I didn't understand much because I'm not educated much on the whole Chinese history. It's best to get the audio tour so it can tell you everything you need to know. There are little bits of information... More

We loved walking around this place. So much beautiful greenery, and buildings. Pools with huge firings, turtles and fish.

I'd suggest having lunch or breakfast and having a stroll around before it gets too crowded, it's very well maintained and beautiful. Some of the areas are under maintenance so I'm sure it will only get more impressive.

Too understand what you're visiting, get yourself at least the audio tour. Chinese experience their history way different than Europeans do, so to understand why all these emperors and warriors are so important you need subtitles. The garden is great to rest and to calm down.

This temple collectively celebrates warriors of the Three Kingdoms period. There are big, strange sculptures to view, and drum and bell towers, ancient stelae, a wonderful tea garden (I watched old folks play cards for a long time) and is worth visiting if you have any sense of the history of the Three Kingdoms period.

For many people, especially those who love Chinese history, in Chengdu, Wu Hou Temple is a must-visit. With traditional ancient buildings and peaceful environment, it is not only a place for Chinese to worship our heros of Shu State but also a very great place for foreign tourists to enjoy the beauty of the ancient side of Chengdu.
