Address: China, Sichuan, Chengdu, Wuhou, Wuhouci St, 231号武侯祠景区内
Visiting Time: 2 Hours
 WuHou Shrine Tickets: 60 RMB/per

       chengdu Wuhou Temple: China has a recorded history of some 3,600 years, beginning with the Shang Dynasty(16th——12th century BC).The first stage is the primitive society. The history was much associated with the supposed pre-Xia Dynasty(21th-16th century BC). The second major period lasted from about 2,000 to 200 BC. The history dated the beginning of the slave society from the Xia Dynasty, which constituted the first Chinese state. The third stage extended all the way from 221BC, when Qin Shihuang united China, to the Opium War of 1840. Historical documents name the third period as the Feudal Imperial Rule. The feudal society in China passed through a period of disunity beginning at the Three Kingdom Period, and ending in short-lived Sui Dynasty(581——618), Western Jin(265——316)via Eastern Jin(317——439) and the Southern and Northern Dynasties(386——589).

     During this period the warlords took the opportunity to build up their own political and military strength and made themselves into autonomous regional warlords. Finally, the warlords carved the Han Empire into three kingdoms of Wei, Shu and Wu.

     The populous episodic novel, The Romance of the Three Kingdoms traces the rise and fall of the three kingdoms and vividly depicts the turbulent social conditions at that time. The rulers of the three independent kingdoms struggled for supremacy.

     Cao Cao and his son established the kingdom of Wei at Loyang. He was in actual control of only the North China homeland. Two rivals soon proclaimed emperors themselves elsewhere.

   The kingdom of Wu with its capital in Nanjing occupied Changjiang Valley, The kingdom of Shu was created with its capital in Chengdu in the control of Sichuan and parts of the highland of south China.

Kingdom of Shu
Wuhou Temple is much associated with the kingdom of Shu. It is the place to commemorate Zhu Geliang, Prime Minister of the kingdom. Wuhou was a top official title conferred upon Zhu Geliang after his death. It is unfortunate that no historical documents have recorded the time of its establishment. However, Du Fu, a top Tang Dynasty poet wrote a poem of which two lines say as below:“Where would I find the Prime Minister’s shrine?Somewhere outside Jinguan, in a dense cypress glade.”

Sino-Ocean Taikoo Li Chengdu 太古里购物中心

Add:Dacisi Rd, Jinjiang, Chengdu, Sichuan, China
Tour Attractions Type:Top-class Stores and Shopping

Sino-Ocean Taikoo Li is the living urban heart of future Chengdu. Set in the context of the Buddhist Daci Temple, the low-rise, project provides a unique mix of shopping, dining, drinking, entertainment, live performance, workplace, and hotel accommodation in an exciting and enjoyable setting of lanes, squares, streets, alleys and courtyards. Interwoven into this master plan for urban regeneration is the strategic conservation and adaptive reuse of six preserved buildings and ancient lanes associated with ancient Daci Temple at the heart of the development.

The project has evolved out of a unique retail planning concept of “Fast Lane” and “Slow Lane” (play fast, live slow), delivering a diverse shopping and spatial experience to visitors. The “Fast Lane” incorporates luxury brands and high-end contemporary fashion while the “Slow Lane” comprises a line-up of outdoor diners, al fresco cafes and lifestyle stores.

The architectural style adopted is both timeless and contemporary, embracing the local spirit and reflecting the details and language of the traditional Sichuan style without resorting to pastiche. It is inspired by the architectural tradition of great shopping streets – the charismatic retail buildings, colorful signage, and attractive shopfronts serve to create a vibrant atmosphere. The layout of the streets and lanes further reinforces the historical context of the project. The ground level buildings create a level of transparency that allows shops and restaurants to express their individual brand and identity. The main structure of the buildings is steel with high quality cladding and glass curtain wall systems. The beauty of Dacisi architecture is manifested in well-proportioned low-rise buildings and sensitive landscape design, creating great public open spaces.

The project is positioned as an Urban Retail and Entertainment Destination. The developer aims to recreate a whole-day city-centre shopping and entertainment experience in the town centre by providing everything a modern Chinese consumer could possibly need or want in one complex while maintaining the intimate feel of a boutique-lined side street. The project’s design team focused on creating an environment that would attract and retain consumers, and the leasing team set ambitious targets for brands that are not yet in Chengdu.

The main building of Dufu Thatched Cottage is the Hall of Verse History, which houses a majestic statue of Dufu.
Outside the Hall, visitors can see the Flower Bathing Brook lazily meandering through the building of chengdu Dufu Thatched Cottage.

In 759 Du Fu moved to Chengdu, built a thatched hut near the Flower Rinsing Creek and lived there for four years. The “thatched hut” period was the peak of Du Fu’s creativity, during which he wrote two hundred and forty poems, among them “My Thatched Hut was torn apart by Autumn Wind” and “The Prime Minister of Shu”.
A Quatrain, one of the poet’s well known pieces, written at the cottage in 764, describes the surrounding scenery:
    A pair of golden orioles sings in green willows
    a column of snowy egrets flies off in blue sky
    my window contains peaks with a thousand years of ice
    my gate harbors boats from ten thousand miles downriver

The original thatched hut built by Du Fu was destroyed. Key buildings in the Du Fu Thatched Cottage were constructed in the early 16th century during the Ming dynasty and extensively renovated in 1811 during the Qing dynasty.

Du Fu Thatched Cottage consists of several areas:
Du Gong Bu memorial Hall (Du Gongbu ci), where the life and work of Du Fu was displayed, the library area displayed published works of Du Fu, including some rare Song dynasty wood carving editions. The foreign language section displays a large number of foreign language books of Du Fu’s works.

Jinsha Site Museum 金沙博物馆

The Jinsha Site was found in February 2001 in urban Chengdu. It covers 5 square-kilometers, and dates back to 12th to 7th century B.C. (approximately 2900 – 3200 years ago). It was the capital of the ancient Shu Kingdom, which is considered to be the ancient civilization center along Yangtze River. It is the first major archaeological discovery in China at the beginning of the 21st century, and also a significant archaeological event following the discovery of the Sanxingdui site in Sichuan Province. Therefore, it has become one of the Ten Major Archaeological Discoveries of China in 2001.

So far, archaeologists have unearthed important features of large-scale palace foundation, sacrificial area, residential area, and burial site. On the site, a great variety of artifacts in large numbers were unearthed, including more than 5,000 articles of gold, bronze, jade, stone, ivory, and lacquered wood, as well as millions of pottery potsherds, tons of ivory and thousands of boar tusks and deer horns. Therefore, it is considered that the Jinsha Site has unearthed the richest gold and jade wares and the densest elephant tusks in the world. At present, it can be confirmed that after the decline of Sanxingdui civilization, Jinsha Site should be another arisen center of politics, economy and culture in Chengdu Plain mainly from late Shang Dynasty to Western Zhou Dynasty, and also one of the most important archaeological sites of Pre-Qin period in China.

The discovery of Jinsha Site is of great significance for the study of Shu culture, including its origin, development, and decline, and provides convincing evidence for an explanation of the abrupt disappearance of Sanxingdui culture. Jinsha Site revives the lost glory in history, and unveils the prosperity of ancient Shu kingdom.The site, together with the ruins of prehistorical cities in Chengdu Plain, the Sanxingdui site and the canoe-shape coffin graves of the Warring States period, represent the four different stages of ancient Shu culture. The discoveries not only have proved that the Chengdu Plain was the center of ancient civilization in the upper reaches of the Yangtze, and an important component of Chinese civilization, but also provide crucial evidence to the theory that the origins of ancient Chinese civilization is a unity of pluralism.

  The discovery of Jinsha Site has pushed forward the Chengdu history from 2,300 years ago to 3,000 years ago, which offers an opportunity to improve the popularity of Chengdu, the Historical and Cultural City of China. Since the discovery was unknown to the public, the CPC and the state leaders have attached great importance to the work in Jinsha Site. The central leaders of China have inspected the site successively, and indicated to continue good job on excavation, conservation and construction of the site. Lots of famous experts have also come here to investigate and offer suggestions on the work of the site.

    After discovery, all levels of party committee have drawn great attention to the conservation work of site and construction work of the museum. In April, 2007, the Jinsha Site Museum with 3,000 years’ history of Chengdu has completed to build on the original site. This is a site museum for the conservation, study and exhibition on Jinsha culture and ancient Shu civilization, which is composed of Relics Hall, Exhibition Hall, Tourist Center, Preservation and Restoration Center, Jinsha Theatre and Heritage Park with total coverage of 300,000 square meters and floor area of 38,000 square meters. Moreover, it is also the modern garden-type museum with the function of education, research, and recreation, and also the symbolic landscape for the profound history of Chengdu.

  The Museum has two main constructions by both sides of Modihe River, Relics Hall and Exhibition Hall, which is the implementation of the idea of round sky and square earth for architectural features,and regarded as the landmark building of Chengdu. Relics Hall covering an area of 7,588 square meters is built into sloping-roof and steel-framed semi-circle structure in the east of museum and the south of Modihe River.
  Relics Hall is the excavation site located on the ruins of ancient sacrificial area, and also the best-preserved site with the longest history and largest amounts of cultural relics. The site is protected originally, so that the tourists can sense the magnificent scene of sacrificial ceremony held by ancient Shu kingdom along the river 3,000 years ago.Moreover, you can acquaint yourself with the meticulous and complicated excavation work from 2001 to now on the spot where the precious cultural relics are unearthed.

The Exhibition Hall with the coverage of 16,000 square meters is built into sloping-roof and steel-framed square structure in the north of Modihe River. It has 5 exhibition rooms with the theme of Primitive Homeland, King Palace at a Glance, Immortal Heaven and Earth, Peak of Perfection and Seeking Answers to the Mysteries of Jinsha, displaying the brilliance and glory of ancient Jinsha by the modern technology in different visual angles such as the eco-environment, architecture style, production and living, funeral custom and religious worship activity.

Here, you can see the 4D film Dreaming Back to Jinsha. It could bring you to traverse the space-time back to 3,000 years to see the brilliant ancient Shu kingdom from Duyu Dynasty to Kaiming Dynasty. The Exhibition Hall also offers service facilities, such as Press Briefing Room, Academic Lecture Room, Jinsha Souvenir Shop, Flavor of Jinsha Restaurant Bar, Information Desk, and Deposit Center.

In December, 2011, the pattern of The Sun and Immortal Bird Gold Ornament has been selected as core pattern of City Logo Design of Chengdu. Today, Jinsha Site Museum is not only the symbolic cultural landscape of profound Chengdu history, but also the indispensable exhibition of ancient Shu civilization, social education base for adolescents, and leisure place for tourists’ visiting. Since opening to the public on April 16th, 2007, we have done the utmost to honor our mission that let people step into Jinsha and let Jinsha go to the world, and up till now, the museum has received 5 million visitors from home and abroad.
