Many visitors come to Chengdu for the temples, the shopping, the restaurants and sightseeing. Wenshu Temple and surrounding area has all that and more. Lined with quaint buildings in the ancient Chinese architectural style, each part of this fascinating area has its own feel and its own culture, yet it is all united in a single cultural experience. Officially, the area is called the City Recreation District or Wen Shu Fang (文殊坊), but some people opt to call it by its more light-hearted nickname: Wen Shu “FUN”.
