Wenshu Monastery is the best- preserved Buddhist temple in Chengdu,China. Initially built in Tang Dynasty, it has now a history of 1300 years. In 1703, Emperor Kangxi of Qing Dynasty inscribed for it a “konglin (empty woods)”stele. The relic of Xuan Zang’s parietal bone is held in consecration here.
This quiet monastery is a good place for strolling. Clean yards and exquisite gardens melt with each other, small ponds and underused buildings in corners of the complex, the elegant environment will get you lost in the silence, totally forgetting the bustle and hustle of city life.
