Du Fu’s Thatched Cottage

Du Fu stayed here for nearly four years and composed over 240 poems during this period of time.
It is one of the national key cultural relics' protection units and a major tourist attraction in downtown Chengdu.

Located by the Blossom-Bathing Brook, Du Fu Thatched Cottage is well known as the former residence of Du Fu, the great poet of the Tang Dynasty, during his stay in Chengdu. In the winter of 759, Du Fu fled to Sichuan to escape from the An-Shi Rebellion. He set up a straw-roofed house named Chengdu Thatched Cottage, where he lived for about four years and composed more than 240 poems that are still popular today.
