This is interesting place if you know the history of General Yue Fei. As I wasn't understand about the history, than this place is a bit boring. They have a tomb of General Yue Fei before exit and the information of that era and unfortunetly all in mandarin and it feels like a museum not a temple perhaps. The entrance fee is RMB 25/person. The place is quiet clean and a bit small. Less information in english here.

Compared to most other temples and attractions in Chinese cities, this is relatively small so this can be covered in about less than an hour or so. However, one would need some knowledge of Chinese history to be able to understand the significance of this temple.

This temple is dedicated to the Song Dynasty general Yue Fei, who is consider a popular war hero and patriot in China. His tragic death by Qin Hui on false charges in 1142 only adds to his long lasting fame.

Near the main entrance, one will be greeted by a huge statue of Yue Fei in one of the buildings. It was somewhat interesting to note that there are people actually going there to worship Yue Fei, complete with joss sticks and incense. Do take some time to read through some of the exhibits in the temple if you are interested to know a little Chinese history.

There are two pairs of kneeling statues which are gated off near Yue Fei's tomb. These represent the people who were considered responsible for Yue Fei's untimely death, such as Qin Hui and Zhang Jun. It was gated off because it was customary in the past for visitors to spit on the statues; however in recent years this has been discouraged.

Overall, one may consider going to this temple after a walk on the Su Causeway on the West Lake since it is just a short distance from each other and will not take long to do a full sightseeing of the whole temple.

A simple museum setup to commemorate the passing of a war hero popular amongst the Chinese community. Its right opposite West Lake Impressions. Worth a 45 minutes visit.

It is a bit boring, unless you know the History of Yuefei well. If you are trying to find somewhere scenic, this is not the place to be. There are many more free places around the lake. if you want to see a temple, there are many other ones.

We wandered in here as we were in the Xihu area but there is not much charm and the place is kinda of run-down. There's little explanation and we wondered the significance of this place.

Nothing much in the temple except for the story of Yue Fei. The temple is relatively small and not much interesting scene. The ticket is expensive for such simple thing in temple

I don't know the history of China but I still enjoyed my trip here. Since you're in China, might as well understand a little more about their culture, history etc. The admission ticket cost 25Yuan. There's toilets in there but there's no hook in the ladies' cubicle for those who need to hook their bag, just a small corner ledge to place your bag. Overall, I do recommend visitors to come to this place if they have time!

Probably better for those who know Chinese history, this place is a good stop on your journey, which is most likely to be the case if visiting Su Causeway in Hangzhou’s famous West Lake. For background: Yue Fei is probably the most known national hero to defeat foreign invasions, but executed by his own emperor based on false charges.

Considered to be the model for "loyalty" in China. An ancient Chinese General that died for his country, at the hands of his own countrymen but even in his death he expressed love and loyalty to China and has no regrets. A great mausolum to visit. Do not forget to take a picture in front of the statue where you see a couple kneeling, binded, facing towards Yue Fei. If you wonder what that's about he was the guy that betrayed Yue Fei and caused his death, and I guess his wife is there too repent of his sins with him. In the old days it's customary to spit of them, but they don't allow that anymore (for obvious reasons).
