Marquis Wu's Shrine

China, an East Asian country is one of the world’s oldest civilizations. It has a vast cultural history of more than five thousand years and an outstanding natural beauty. On the other hand, this country has remained a comparatively isolated and secluded one, and being a land of mystery, this country is not known to the western half of the world. However, China is rapidly developing and has grown in the phase of modernization, with an immense speed and is also welcoming the outer world to interact and do business with them.
Marquis Wu's Shrine is situated in the southern suburbs of Chengdu. It was first built by a local feudal lord Li Xiong of Western Jin dynasty who ruled China from 265 to 316 in memory of Zhu Geliang, prime minister of the Shu Kingdom of the Three Kingdoms period. He was also known as Marquis Wu and renowned for his wisdom and dedication to duty. During the early Ming dynasty, who ruled China from 1368 to 1644, the shrine was merged with the Temple of Liu, but name of the shrine has remained the same. Renovations took place during the Qing dynasty in 1911 and buildings include Liu Bei Hall and Zhu Geliang Hall.
In the shrine there are 47 historic figures and sculptures of the Shu Kingdom, some 40 steel and tablets, more than 30 plaques and dozens of ancient tripods, incense burners, bells, drums and relics. Especially a bronze drum called the Zhuge Liang Drum and best known among the many relics is the  Three-Consummation Tablet which is praised for its ingenious essay, calligraphy and carving. Here also can be found the 1,700-year-old Liu Bei Tomb called Huiling Tomb. And the visit there can give people a complete idea of the political, economical, cultural situation in ancient Chengdu.
China is a popular travel destination for visitors and globe trotters from all over the world who appreciate its beautiful landscapes, rich culture, delicious local cuisine, hospitality and safety. Quality is China's top priority.
