 Built in 1889, one of three famous cultural relics and landmark of Chengdu, is dedicated to a woman, Xue Tao, a poet in the Tang Dynasty (618-907). Xue Tao was born in a turbulent society so her father named her 'tao' wave in Chinese. History records that she wrote 500 poems and that her contemporaries greatly admired her. Xue Tao loved bamboo; over 150 kinds of bamboos from home and abroad grow here in her honor. Photo by Byunggu Yu on 18 February 2008.
