Du Fu Thatched Cottage

The Du Fu Thatched Cottage is located beside the Huanhua Brook in the west suburb of Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan province. Du Fu's poems had significant influence on the development of Chinese literature, and therefore he is esteemed as the Poem Saint. In the 2nd year (759) of the Qianyuan reign, Du Fu was exiled in Chengdu, and set up the hut where he lived for about 4 years. During this time, he wrote about 240 poems, many of which such as “My Thatched Hut Wrecked by the Autumn Wind”  won universal praise. After the Northern Song Dynasty (960-1127), his later generations built gardens and a memorial hall on the site of the thatched cottage.

British Prime Minister David Cameron and former French President Jacques Chirac have visited Du Fu Thatched Cottage.
