Yue Fei’s Tomb, Hangzhou 2017

The Yue-Fei Temple or commonly known in Chinese as Yuewang Temple is a temple built in honor of Yue Fei, a general of the Southern Song Dynasty. Today, it is a national monument protected by China.

Yue Fei (1103 – 1141) came from Tangyin in Xiangzhou of today’s Henan Province. He was a great general who was famous for wars against the Jin Dynasty (1115 – 1234) in the Song Dynasty (960 – 1279).

The Tomb of General Yue Fei has been demolished and renovated several times. The existing plant was rebuilt in 1715 in the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) and comprehensively repaired in 1979. The tombs and tomb sculptures in the temple date back to the 12th century and have been carefully restored.

On an area of ​​four hectares, the tomb is located at the southern foot of the Qixia Hill near the West Lake. When you enter the doorway with double eaves, you will find a terrace with tall trees on both sides. The Shrine of Remembrance, the main hall, is right in the center. A sculpture by Yue Fei is in the heart of the hall.
