The Tomb of General Yue Fei is a memorial in honor of Yue Fei, (historical figure of Song dynasty) Located in a garden of serenity, a beautiful monument houses the memorial statue of loyalty and the tragic fate of the general who is greatly admired for his unwavering loyalty to his country.

A Story of Loyalty

During Song Dynasty, Yue Fei was the general in charge to repel the invasions of Jin in the north. However, he was betrayed by two officers at court, Qin Hui and Zhang Jun, who contrived to get him back and imprisoned for treason. As a result, Qin Hui is later blamed by later historians. Although the General Yue Fei was loyal to the Emperor, he was executed and buried in the garden of a temple. His last words were "The Heaven knows what I do for my country, and evidence of such an injustice will be clarified in the future!"
And he was right. Twenty-one years later, his loyalty was recognized and then a decision was made to erect a monument in memory of the patriotic hero, the Mausoleum of General Yue Fei. His body was even moved to the new site.

A Memorial for Yue Fei

In honor of the battles that General Yue Fei won, the Mausoleum houses a statue of 4.5 meters high representing the general and warrior dressed. The statue is surrounded by a magnificent two-story building. On a tablet hanging behind the statue, you can read one sentence dedicated to this flawless, loyal general: "Loyalty, endless devotion to his country." Here, we can see the great contribution Yue Fei has made for his own country. And his loyalty and bravery are well-known and greatly admired.
