Though nestled among a fast-paced street scene, the grounds of the Wenshu Temple offer visitors well-manicured gardens and intricate statues and carvings which spring from every corner. If all of your wanderings render you thirsty, you can relax in a bamboo chair and enjoy a cup of tea from the sprawling temple teahouse which is accompanied by a vegetarian restaurant. Together, these areas are regarded as visitor favorites and reasons in themselves to pay a visit.
The Wenshu Temple is also known for the hundreds of cultural relics which are permanently housed on the monastery grounds. Artifacts include the partially broken skull of Xuan Zhang, a renowned monk who lived during the Tang Dynsaty, as well as a jade Buddha which in 1922 was hand carried by a monk who walked all the way from Myanmar to the modern day city of Chengdu.
