Dear friends, I have taken a recent interest in ROTK after being introduced by my friend to the arcade game Sangokushi Taisen 3. I have found out my favourite hero is Gan Ning from Wu. Just want to check if anyone here has made visits to the graves or memorials to any of the ROTK characters before? I am still doing alot of research on the exact location of Gan Ning's grave. This trip prolly won't happen for another few years haha.

Any one actually visited any?

I'm not sure where the graves are, but you could probably take a Three Kingdoms tour through China.

I know the temple of Liu Bei is still in Cheng Du. And Red Cliffs (with the characters engraved) is still at Dongting Lake in the middle Yangtze delta.

I'm planning to go too, someday. It's a major goal.

HERE!!!! I believe in Hubei. I THINK. Not sure.

HERE

I've done offerings and prayers in my home before, but I have not gone there.

You know...

HEY! That's a good project. We can like map out all the locations and look up how to visit them.

I love Gan Ning too. To bits. >w> Feel free to fangirl with me.

Thanks all for the replies!

wow Guobia the link you provided has very good information! Can you read Chinese? I'm struggling but hope to figure out what is written there.

From what I gathered currently, the location is in Hubei, Yang Xin, Fu Chi Kou. There is a map here:

Alot more work to be done haha

Apparently there is a tour package to visit the grave. Not sure if it is still active. Will need some time to read through the Chinese haha

Some photos of the park.

BTW, in the first photo of the link GuoBia posted, it seems that the name of the statue is Gan Ning Ti Du 甘寧提督, are the last two charactes same as 都督?
