Yeluchucai Memorial Temple

Yeluchucai Yeluchucai was an advisor to Genghis Khan (1162-1227) and a famous statesman of Yuan Dynasty. A temple in his honour, located near the Pavilion of Flourishing Culture in the Summer Palace, was opened to the public in September, 1984. It is a three-hall temple richly ornamented and surrounded by trees.

The temple consists of Yeluchucai’s coffin chamber, memorial halls and his stature. These were pulled down during the Cultural Revolution (1966-1976), but have since been restored.

In addition, a tablet bearing an inscription in the handwriting of Emperor Qianlong (1736-1795) of the Qing Dynasty has been erected. A stone statue placed near the tomb in the court is a relic from the Yuan Dynasty (1279-1368) unearthed in 1979. It is thought to date from the time when Kublai Khan (1215-1294), the grandson of Genghis Khan, built the temple.
