Wǔhóu Temple

Buddhist Temple in Chengdu

Located adjacent to Nánjiāo Park and surrounded by mossy cypresses, this temple (rebuilt in 1672) honours several figures from the Three Kingdoms period, namely legendary military strategist Zhuge Liang and Emperor Liu Bei (his tomb is here). Both were immortalised in the Chinese literature classic, Romance of the Three Kingdoms (Sān Guó Yǎnyì).

From November through April the temple closes at 6.30pm. Just east of the temple is Jinli Gujie (锦里古街), one of Chéngdū’s restored ancient alleyways, crammed with souvenir stalls and eateries.
