Da Yu's Mausoleum

Da Yu's Mausoleum

Da Yu's Mausoleum, a temple and mausoleum complex in honor of China's "great grandfather" Emperor Yu, took over 100 years to erect.

Six kilometers southeast of Shaoxing stands an ancient complex that comprises a tomb, temple and memorial hall built to commemorate Da Yu. It is named Da Yu's Mausoleum after the ancient Chinese hero who conquered a disastrous flood.
