What people are saying:

Together with Yue Fei, they claim the West Lake Shuang Shaobao, but it is a pity that they have been under repair recently and have not been opened to the outside world. The tomb of Yu Qian and the archway nearby are telling all of this!

Additional Information

Introduction

Yu Qian Shrine is located at Mount Santai in Xihu District, Hangzhou City. Yu Qian was framed for treason and killed in Beijing. His remains were buried at the shrine. The case was finally overruled, and Ming Emperor Xiaozong built a shrine beside the tomb, combing the two into one. He also set two mourning festivals, in Spring and Automn, for Yu Qian. Currently, there are different Ming-style stone statues and plaques on the two sides of the tomb. In the halls of the shrines, documents and artifacts about Yu Qian are on display. The tomb is surrounded by conifer trees, creating a valuable cultural heritage scenic area by Xihui Lake that serves to educate visitors about nationalism.
