Proud Statue of Yue Fei at the Yue Fei Temple 岳飞庙

I never thought that I would be visiting this temple again so soon. Anyway, it was because of my friends’ persuasion that I am in this situation right now. The entrance to the Yue Fei Mausoleum isn’t that much, probably because not a lot of people come to visit this place. It is actually composed of two parts – the mausoleum and the temple. The temple is the more accessible one as it is to the right upon entering the grounds.

Just like the last time, there weren’t a lot of people visiting ths temple. I am starting to wonder why, I can only theorize that West Lake has a lot of sights to offer that people don’t all end up in the same place. The statue of Yue Fei stands proud much like a king. Indeed some have conferred him the title of king, and the fact that he was a temple of his own may also mean that he has surpassed even the rank of a king.
