- Location: Qixia Hill, Hangzhou City, Zhejiang Province
Located at the southern foot of Qixia Hill, the Mausoleum of General Yue Fei (岳飞墓) was first built in 1221, the 14th year of the Jiading Reign of the Southern Song Dynasty to memorize this great general. He was famous for fighting against the Jin regime (1115 - 1234) during the Song Dynasty (960 - 1279). The existing one was rebuilt in 1715 during the Qing Dynasty (1644 - 1911).
Right in the center is the main hall. A colorful sculpture of general Yue is set in the middle of the hall. To the west of the main hall is a yard. There are two corridors exhibiting poems written in appraisal of Yue Fei, whose tomb can be found right in the center. Aside from that, there are four sculpted figures in kneeling position, including one of Qin Hui, a treacherous court official who was ultimately responsible for the death of Yue Fei.
