Dufu’s Cottage

The park and memorial has been re-built and expanded upon in virutally every epoch since. Today the park is both a serene garden and a museum to Du Fu’s life and work. There is a small Tang Dynasty archaeological museum in the park with an excavation site and displays of the tools of daily life 1,000 years ago.
