Travel back in time at Tang poet cottage

Du Fu Thatched Cottage is an idyllic 24-acre (97,000 m2) park and museum in honour of the Tang Dynasty poet Du Fu at the western outskirts of Chengdu, adjacent to the Huanhua Xi, (Flower Rinsing Creek). In 1961, the Chinese government established Du Fu Thatched Cottage as a national heritage site. Du, along with Li Bai, his contemporary, is considered one of the greatest poets in China. He harbored ambitions to help the country in ways similar to Zhuge Liang, by becoming a good civil servant, but war and rebellion devastated the country and frequently forced him to run for survival. The last 15 years of his life were a time of constant unrest.[Photo/]
