Wuhou Shrine, also known as Wuhou Temple or Temple of Marquis Wu, is located southwest of Chengdu’s city center. It’s here you find the famous Zhaolie Temple of Han, which was built to commemorate Liu Bei, founder of Shu State during the Three Kingdom Period (220-280). Wuhou Temple itself was constructed to commemorate Zhuge Liang, Prime Minister of the Shu State. Huiling Mausoleum (Liu Bei’s tomb) and Sanyi Temple, which was relocated here in 1997 due to urban development, are also at the site. Sanyi refers to the famous Three Sworn Brothers; Liu Bei, Guan Yu, and Zhang Fei. Three Kingdom history and culture are popular in China and Asia, hence the significance of this site. Definitely worth a visit by any traveler interested in expanding the direct experience of this important era in China’s past.
