Cemetery notes and/or description:
Hui Ling (King Liu Bei's Mausoleum) is located within the Wuhou (Martial Marquis) Memorial Temple which is dedicated to Zhuge Liang, the Martial Marquis of Shu in the Three Kingdoms.


The Wuhou Temple covers 37,000 square meters (398,277 square feet). The date of its establishment is unclear, only that it was built next to the temple of Liu Bei.
It was combined with the Temple of Liu Bei at the beginning of the Ming Dynasty; consequently, the entrance plaque reads 'Zhaolie Temple of Han Dynasty' (Zhaolie is the posthumous title of Liu Bei).

The main body of the temple is divided into five sections, the Gate, the second Gate, the Hall of Liu Bei, the corridor, and the Hall of Zhuge Liang, all of which run south to north. Inside, clay sculptures of Shu Emperor and ministers stand together, making them a special feature.

Liu Bei's grave mound is 12 meters high, enclosed by a 180 meter long wall. According to The Records of Three Kingdoms, King Liu Bei was buried here in August 223AD and later two wives, Madam Gan and Madam Wu were also buried here.

The current temple was rebuilt in 1672. Surrounded by old cypresses and classical red walls.
