The story of Yue Fei is well know by Chinese all over. A loyal General who is famed and then killed in the prison. The structures and grand but not over the top and there are illustrations in each of the hall to explain the history behind the man. This is where it start to go wrong. There is no... More

We had studied some background information concerning Yue Fei, the Chinese General of War in Song Dynasty prior to visit this Mausoleum. The place was quiet when compared with other parts of Xi Hu and entrance fee was required upon entering this spot. All the Chinese respected Yue Fei and they paid due respect to the General when entering the... More

It's right next the West Lake. You should go with a tour guide or someone who knows enough to explain the whole story of Yue Fei life. It's beautiful inside, small but a nice place to visit.

Yue Fei is a most famous Chinese general who died young ( 39 years old ) and is buried here with his son. It is not really a temple but more of a mini museum with info on his achievements and history during the Song dynasty....

Visited this mostly as a side trip. It's a museum to Yue Fei (a local hero). Interesting to read the history and background, but not much to do or see otherwise.

This temple is unlike any temples I've visited. There is no incense and no crowd. It is quiet, tranquil and dignified. I found that to be an appropriate tribute to one of China's great generals. I had the privilege of hearing a guide talk about the intricacies of the site and that enriched my visit greatly. Really made history come... More

We visited the Mausoleum with a private guide. That was very useful as the guide was able to explain the history, starting from Yue Fei' upbringing, his exploits, right till his death when he was served the poison wine by the emperor then. Also interesting was how his body was smuggled out and buried in a secret location for years,... More
