The West Lake is undoubtedly Hangzhou's most renowned attraction for its natural surroundings and history. The lake, nicknamed "paradise on earth," was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2011. Near the lake is a scenic area which comprises many notable spots, including the Solitary Hill (Gushan); the mausoleum of General Yue Fei, a celebrated hero of the Song Dynasty (960-1279); and the Ling Yin Temple, one of China's largest Buddhist temples.
