When your emperor is corrupt and unjust, should you still defend your country against foreign invaders? Should you revolt or stay loyal? Should you become the new emperor or let the emperor persecuted you? Those are the questions in the life of Yue Fei, a great general of the Song Dynasty. His loyalty to his country made him a people's... More

This Mausoleum is a good place to learn more about this Chinese hero and reminisce about olden days honour, morality, heroic actions, skills in warfare and also have a glimpse into the lives of that era. It also offers some insight into betrayal and immorality.

Yue Fei is a famous warrior in Chinese history that almost all Chinese people would have heard of. This is where he is being enshrined and it's good to drop by to pay a visit and read up a little about him.

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

But it was worth it, as I learnt a few things about the history of China, Yue Fei (12th century) - A brave general who remained loyal and faithful to his king and fought bravely... 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.
