However, China is rapidly developing and has grown in the phase of modernization, with an immense speed and is also welcoming the outer world to interact and do business with them.
General Yue Fei born in 1103 and died in 1142 was a national hero of the Song dynasty who distinguished himself in battles against northern invaders. His loyalty to the emperor and success in battle went unrewarded. He achieved heroic status posthumously and in 1162 was at last laid to rest in this tomb, which is inscribed with the words endless loyalty and devotion to one's country.
