Yuelu Academy

Yuelu Academy, situated at the foot of Yuelu Mountain, was one of the four ancient Chinese academies. Its predecessor can be traced back to the late Tang Dynasty and Five Dynasties Period. Until 1926, Yuelu Academy was formally called Hunan University. Because the academy has survived over one thousand years, it is referred to in Chinese as a "thousand-year academy." Yuelu Academy contains a large number of tablets, including the Lushan Temple Tablet, which was written by Li Yong and carved by Huan Xianhe in the Tang Dynasty.
Yuelu Academy was established in the ninth year of Kaibao Period of North Song (976 AD). In 1015, it was famous for its study atmosphere and obliged the name by Emperor Zhen Zong. From then on, it became one of the four academies in China. Walking through Song, Yuan, Ming, Qing Dynasties, it was changed to be Hunan University in 1926, with a history of more than one thousand years. It is called a rare "one thousand year institution of higher learning" by modern scholars. The school running history from Yuelu Academy to Hunan University reflects the variance of China's education system and is a reduction of the history of China's  education development.Welcome to check our other website for more tour information about Yuelu Academy.
