Does anyone have pictures of tombs or monuments of officers of the Three Kingdoms? Not looking for anyone in particular, just to find as many as I can...

That is supposedly where Zhuge Liang's robe was buried at the place where he fought his last battle, Wuzhangyuan, although his body was taken back to Cheng Du...

Humm, those are some good pictures, I had heard of the their being a temple out in Chengdu, that was deicated to the Shu kingdoms, it was called the Wuhuo temple or somthing. Intersting enough have they not found Guan Yu's tomb yet? Or was it historycally accurate that he had his head cut off by Wu so he couldn't have gotten a proper burial.

I like that fact about the Galbladder.

Guan Yu's head was buried by Cao Cao in Luoyang, Henan. Guan Yu's body was buried by Sun Quan in Dangyang, Hubei.

That may be where they are buried now but I can assure you that Zhuge Liang was origanally buried on Mount Ding Jun.

Zhuge Liang's real tomb is indeed near the foot of Mount Dingjun 定军山. The mountain is located in Mian 勉 county of Shaanxi province, hence my earlier statement that it is in Mian county. The "second tomb" is at Qishan 祁山 (Mount Qi) - some of his clothes are said to be buried there. And there is a famous shrine to him in Chengdu 成都, but it is not a tomb.

Guan Yu's head was buried by Cao Cao in Luoyang, Henan. Guan Yu's body was buried by Sun Quan in Dangyang, Hubei.

Can you get some other tomb pictures? I have a friend who really wants to see Dian Wei's tomb or whatever.

If you perceive that there are four possible flaws in your debate in which something can get discredited, and circumvent these, then a fifth flaw, unprepared for, will promptly develop.
