Thatched Cottage of Du Fu

Thatched Cottage of Du Fu Travel Guide

Thatched Cottage of Du Fu is located on the side of the Flower Washing Brook in the western suburbs of Chengdu. It is the former residence of the celebrated Tang dynasty poet, Du Fu (712-770AD). Du Fu lived in Chengdu from A.D.759 for three years and nine months, creating more than 200 poems, many of which are generally regarded as his masterpieces and are still chanted today.

Thatched Cottage of Du Fu covers a total area of 24 hectares (about 59 acres), and is the combination of both Fan´an Temple in the east and the Plum Garden in the west.
The exhibits here include a brief account of Dufu´s life and some of his original calligraphy and poems. The complex also contains three imposing statues of some of China´s greatest poets; Du Fu, Lu You and Huang Tingjian (the latter two were Song dynasty poets).

Today, this is a pleasant site to visit, with nice buildings dotted about, teahouses and pleasant bamboo gardens to wander and explore. This site is also home to the Chengdu Du Fu society.
