Opposite to the Yunyang County, the magnificent Zhang Fei Temple (Zhangfei Miao) with glazed tile and red walls perches on the Flying Phoenix Hill on the southern bank of the Yangtze River. The temple was built to commemorate General Zhang Fei—one of the three sworn blood brothers (the other two are Liu Bei and Guan Yu) of the State of Shu during the Three Kingdoms Period (220-280AD). The temple includes an enormous hall in which a large statue of Zhang Fei can be found, a tower called Jieyi Tower, and pavilions to honor the poet Du Fu, who lived in the temple for two years.
For more than 1700 years, Zhang Fei Temple has attracted a great number of visitors because of its unique architectural style, wood carvings, calligraphy and paintings. The temple is a famous historical site along the Yangtze River.
