  • It is a mausoleum in the kitayama district of West Lake. Many Chinese tourists could idle, well I don't know, seems like a great hero. In the main hall in front of the entrance, a giant statue of Yue Fei. And its surrounding walls depicted life of Yue Fei. In the Catholic Church in Western Europe is likely fall into the illusion of being. Where the watchwords of Yue Fei was hung patriotic words. Friends of the Chinese people "that would mean good? "And when asked, answered"of course". Heroes lived a violent life was like.

  • This mausoleum is really quite nice and is also quite cheap. There are many English translations but I enquire about the life of Yuefei beforehand so that we can really understand its history
