Hanshan Temple, Suzhou

3.9
Hear the bells from Tang poet Zhang Ji's melancholy poem, ''A Night Mooring Near Maple Bridge'' at Hanshan Temple, a Buddhist monastery. See a statue of the poet during your visit, and see the two bells currently used at the temple, both dating from around the start of the 20th century. Reputedly founded during the Tianjian era (502-519 CE), the temple has been largely rebuilt in recent years, but still retains its character, with each aspect discussed in the poem becoming a place of pilgrimage for people across the region.

  • Because of the name of a maple bridge night, poetry's content is clearly written outside the city of Gu, and Cold mountain is the ancient temple of the monks for the praise and named, Temple is not a few points minutes can walk, can pay the bell three, more than not, do not want to knock listen to listen to other people to knock the bell to achieve the effect of meditation, to receive tickets, So have time to look at it!

  • In the western suburbs of the Soviet state, has more than 1400 years of history, is the famous blessing of victory, every day to the temple hit the bell into incense, pray for peace of believers 繹 not absolutely. Temple is very ancient Pot grand, especially in the temple to eat vegetarian noodles, out of Hanshan temple can walk to Maple Bridge to take a look at the scenery of Tang poetry, attention to these two places although adjacent, but separate ticketing.
