Wuhou Temple, also known as Wuhou Shrine Temple of Marquis, is a revered site dedicated to Zhuge Liang, the esteemed Marquis Wu of the Kingdom of Shu during the Three Kingdoms Period (220-280). Zhuge Liang’s multifaceted talents as a politician, military strategist, diplomat, and astronomer have earned him widespread admiration and reverence throughout Chinese history.

Situated in the southwestern part of downtown Chengdu, Wuhou Temple shares its grounds with the Temple of Liu Bei, the revered emperor of Shuhan, and his mausoleum. While the exact date of Wuhou Temple’s establishment remains uncertain, historical records indicate that it was built adjacent to the Temple of Liu Bei. As a result, the entrance plaque of Wuhou Temple bears the inscription “Zhaolie Temple of Shuhan Kingdom,” with “Zhaolie” being Liu Bei’s posthumous title.

The present-day Wuhou Temple complex was reconstructed in 1672, preserving the rich cultural heritage and historical significance of this revered site. As a center of worship and cultural reverence, Wuhou Temple continues to attract visitors from all corners of the globe, offering a glimpse into the illustrious legacy of Zhuge Liang and Liu Bei, as well as the vibrant history of the Three Kingdoms Period.
