Lonely Planet review for Yue Fei Temple
Across from the entrance to the West Lake's 3km-long Su Causeway is Yue Fei Temple, bounded by a redbrick wall and dedicated to General Yue Fei (1103–41) whose tomb is here. Commander of the Song armies, Yue was executed after being deceived by Qin Hui, a treacherous court official. More than 20 years later, Song emperor Gao Zong exonerated Yue and had his corpse reburied at the present site.
