Ruin Monument
Commemorating a patriot and a Chinese national folk hero, Yue Fei Mausoleum (Tomb of Yuefei) makes a popular visit for locals. Located in the temple on the southern foot of Xixia Mountain cloase to Hangzhou city, the tomb and its sculpture date back to the 12th century, while the temple was built in 1221. Han Chinese general Yue Fei fought for the Song dynasty against the Jurchen-ruled Jin dynasty. He was executed on false charges by southern Song authorities, despite his tatoo on the back saying "serve the country with the utmost loyalty." The temple features a large statue of the general, stone sculptures of kneeling prisoners, model soldiers, scenes from various battles, and a floor painting depicting 373 cranes.
