Sichuan's capital is composing a new chapter in developing its tourism by commemorating the ancient luminary poet Du Fu (712-770).
Chengdu is literally writing the literary legacy of acclaimed ancient poet Du Fu in stone. The city's government plans to erect 1,455 tablets, each with a poem by Du Fu.
The tablets inscribed by famous calligraphers will be displayed in the museum surrounding the cottage and the adjacent Flower-bathing Brook Park. The 150 million yuan ($23 million) project will be completed in 2018.
