8/10.-Chengdu, Zhaojue Temple


In the picture on the left you can see the Chinese character for the word "health". It was on a wall in Zhaojue Temple.

Other temples and shrines you can visit in Chengdu are:

The Green Goat Temple, a Taoist temple dedicated to Laozi, author of "The Way and its Power."

The Wuhou Shrine, dedicated to the military strategist Zhuge Liang, from the classic Chinese book "Tale of the Three Kingdoms".

The Daci Temple, where you can see 1,215 Buddha statues in its pavilions and pagodas.

For one-day excursions outside Chengdu, I recommend Leshan's giant Buddha, or Dazu, with its amazing colored rock sculptures.

If you have more days, you can visit the Jiuzhaigou Valley, the Tibetan Sichuan, and in august the Litang Horse Festival.
