Originally built in 1221, Yue Fei Temple is to commemorate the national hero – Yue Fei (1103 – 1142). He was a general, strategist and poet in the Southern Song Dynasty (1127 – 1279). He and his soldiers resisted the invasion of the Jin Dynasty (1115 – 1234) strongly. Unfortunately, Yue Fei was framed by Qin Hui (1090 – 1155) and Zhang Jun (1086 – 1154) and was finally sentenced to death.
