Dufu Temple is the family Temple of the famous poet from the Tang Dynasty. Political frustration and a life of poverty inspired this "Saintly Poet" to write over 1,400 poems, most of which detail contemporary events.
The Temple is an example of typical Tang Dynasty architecture and contains a huge stone statue of the great poet. The most precious historical relic here is an ink copy of a stele written by Dufu which is the only existing inscription by the poet in the world.
If you have a particular passion for Chinese arts or poetry then the Temple is an interesting place to visit. Today, the Temple is still an important site for practicing Buddhists.
