  • Yuelu Academy in the Northern Song Dynasty opened nine years ago, Song Jinzong name, after a few dynasties change in the war has been destroyed but also rehabilitation or restoration has been a Millennium history, is one of the world's oldest institutions. In history, Zhu Xi, Wang Yangming and other thinkers have come to this teaching, and in this book has read the celebrities are countless, such as Zeng Guofan Brothers, Wei Yuan and so on! There are buildings, houses, gardens and so on, brick are the witnesses of history, but winter to come to the cold and some depression, tourists are not much, it is also clear, it is suitable to slowly visit. Tickets 50 yuan, can not buy online can only buy, but, can not pay PO can not credit card only cash in anyway you love not enter, this really feels too impersonal! It feels like the Millennium University is a bit out of touch with today's internet age.

  • This former Academy contains a very attractive Park. In one of the buildings turned into Museum I noticed a beautiful exhibition of carved wooden panels. If you wish it is possible to listen to a little concert given by the students. (CD and DVD for sale) This training academy contains a very attractive park.

  • Four Seasons Yuelu three seasons Spring, visitors to and from the photos. Although the door bar rosin is still in, not the soul of the year. It would be better if it could be a frontier position to vigorously carry forward neo-Confucianism.
