Yue Fei Temple and Tomb
Yue Fei (1103-1142) was a famous general and a national hero in resisting the Jin invasion in the Southern Song Dynasty.
Yue Fei was wrongly accused of defying millitary order during a mission and was put to death at the age of 39 by Emperor Gaozong and a jealous Qin Hui.
In 1163 Song Emperor Gaozong exonerated Yue Fei and had his corpse moved to this site. The tomb of Yue Fei's son, Yue Yun, is located to his left and down the steps from the tombs are the cast iron kneeling statues of Qin Hui and his wife Zhangjun and Mo Qixie.
In 1961, the State Council listed Yue Fei Temple and Tomb as a Key National Historical Relic Protection site.
I really enjoyed visiting this site and highly recommend it to anyone who is visiting Hangzhou.
