Hanshan Temple is one of
Suzhou's greatest landmarks and most active Buddhist
temples. This temple is an important part of Suzhou's
local community and cultural life. Built during
the Liang Dynasty (502-519), more than 1400 years
ago, the temple is named after the famous monk
of that dynasty, Hanshan.
The Hanshan Temple with its dark
roof tiles and yellow walls can be seen very clearly
amongst the surrounding pine and cypress trees.
The main buildings and towers of the Temple complex
offer a good view of the area.
Chinese tourists love to buy
tickets to ring the bell in the Bell Tower as
this act of Buddhist devotion is said to bring
good luck, but they probably just do it for fun!
