Thatched Cottage of Du Fu

The Thatched Cottage of the famous Tang Dynasty Poet Du Fu (712-770AD) lies at the side of the Flower Washing Brook in west Chengdu. In 759, due to the poverty and social upheavals in his home province of Gansu, Du Fu moved to the outskirts of Chengdu, where he built the thatched hut on 44 hectares of land and settled down to write. During his stay of nearly 4 years, he composed more than 240 poems many reflecting his enlightened views on the poverty and misery experienced by the people. The original residence disappeared long ago and over the centuries the commemorative shrine to the poet has developed within a pleasant park. Some buildings date back to the Ming and Qing dynasties and include the poetic history hall, the thatched entrance, Gongbuci Temple and the Shaoling Stone Monument.
