Marquis Wu's Shrine

Introduction

Marquis Wus Shrine is situated in the southern suburbs of Chengdu. It was built by Li Xiong of the Western Jin dynasty (265-316AD) in memory of Zhu Geliang, prime minister of the Shu Kingdom (220-263AD). He was also known as Marquis Wu and renowned for his wisdom and dedication to duty.

During the early Ming dynasty (1368-1644AD), the shrine was merged with the Temple of Liu Bei, but the name of the shrine has remained the same. Renovations took place during the Qing dynasty (1644-1911AD) 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 stone tablets, more than 30 plaques and dozens of ancient tripods, incense burners, bells, drums and other relics.
