Thatched Cottage of Du Fu

This residence of the great Tang Dynasty poet Du Fu (712-770) stands by Wanhua (Flower) Stream in the western outskirts of Chengdu. In 759, Du Fu was forced to leave his hometown and settle in Chengdu, where he built the thatched cottage. Of his many poems, which are still widely known among the Chinese people, over 240 were composed here.
To commemorate the great poet, an exhibition hall has been set up there, which displays many different editions and foreign translations of his works. Visitors here always find it interesting to wander among the bamboo groves and ponds in the peaceful compound around the cottage, retracing the footsteps of the great writer whose poems have withstood the test of over 1,400 years.
