Yue Fei has been known for his heroic act and courage leading his troops to win after win, gaining trust from the people from all across China in its time. But unfortunately his effort didn't last long since he has been trap and excecuted by one of emperor general named Jin Kui because of jeaolusy.But at the end he was found guilty and hated by all people across China. even after hundreds of years people still come to this temple to give respect to the hero "Yue Fei".

This place itself give us a beautiful set with pond, flower, tree. inside the temple we can find the a picture story about Yue Fei. This place have more historical meaning rather than for fun purpose.

Last but not least, I highly recommend you guys who find yourself interested in China history around Hangzhou. But keep in mind, don't expect too much from the toilet despite the beautiful sight. :P

This is actually the same as Yue Fei Mausoleum's post. So do refer to those reviews instead.
Anyway the Tomb of Yue Fei is located within the Mausolem. All can be seen for a single fee of 25 RMB.

Having studied about Yue Fei in school, as well as reading books about him during my school days, it hit a chord to me when i was there, thus to me, it was rather interesting. If you do not know the history behind him, then it would just be another museum or temple tour.

Entrance price is 25 RMB, and you could finish seeing this in an hour's time. 30 mins more if you have to read every piece of explaination. Though the english explaination could be better, but i would think it's decent enough.

IF you have time, do go through one of China's national hero's story. As it brings out the saying of "country before self"

I really recommend the tomb of Yue Fei. It is a very well kept temple and tomb complex and certainly worth the 25 RMB entry fee. The tomb itself is very typical of the period and gives you a great insight into the way that the Chinese continue to honour national heroes centuries after they die. It is worth knowing a little about General Yue Fei before you go as there is not much information in English.

If you like historical and cultural attractions, you will enjoy this one.
