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
