Chengdu - video clip of the Wenshu Temple by Mark Sukhija

The Wenshu Temple in Chengdu was one of the greatest highlights of our trip to China.

One of the best preserved temples in China, six beautiful halls are aligned on an axis through the temple complex. The Temple is also home to an excellent vegetarian restaurant, gardens and tea rooms - which are an excellent way to wile away some hours.

Although one of the main tourist spots in Chengdu, most of the visitors where local Chinese visitors which gave us a sense that we were visiting "real" China. Many locals visited with their families and children - the kids seemed fascinated by the "strangers in town."
