Mausoleum of Yu the Great

Shaoxing, China

The Mausoleum of Yu the Great lies 4Kms from Shaoxing City, China. Yu (also called Xia Yu or Rong Yu) was the last chief of the primitive society that formed an alliance with China. Yu is well-known because he had successfully prevented floods in the region. He had also helped the local farmers to dredge the rivers and build ditches for irrigation. Since China was basically a farming society, he was revered by the people as well as the rulers and religious leaders. Hence, there are many temples in his name. But the Yu Mausoleum in Shaoxing is the most beautiful one with its abundant greenery, pine trees, and bamboo plantations.
