Day 1 Wu Hou Shrine of Chengdu

A shrine to the memory of Liu Bei and Zhuge Liang, the Wu Hou Shrine of Chengdu is the only shrine in China dedicated to both a prime minister and his sovereign. Anyone who has a serious interest in Three Kingdoms culture simply must visit the shrine. There are around 47 clay figures of the Shu Kingdom, standing in two rows according to rank. Created by folk sculptors during the Qing Dynasty, these clay figures are a major acquisition for the shrine.
