We were here eight years ago and hadn't planned to return, but by chance our metro stop exited directly in front of the site, line 4, Beisita stop. There was no metro at that time. We were happy to revisit the site and the memories....More

See the review for Beisita. The garden and temple around the pagoda are very pleasant. You cannot enter the pagoda.

Only takes 15 minutes to walk around the whole site. Very interesting and well preserved. Across the street from the Silk museum, visit them as a pair.

By chance we entered this Pagoda. What a good experience. It looks a bit abandoned, but a the very end of the garden you will spot a tea house. Just enter, drink a tea (we asked for advice) and enjoy an hour of heaven's peace!...More

The North Pagoda is a little off the beaten track, which is probably why it is so free of crowds. About 10 mins walk from the Humble Administrators Garden, but the complete opposite - surrounded by hoarding so it looked closed, but it isnt. Walk...More

The entrance was behind roadworks hoarding at the entrance to a hutong, hard enough to find which is probably why this is such a tranquil spot unlike most of Suzhous gardens. Very old temple, lovely small secluded garden and absolutely worth visiting

Closed, cerrado, this place is closed. And the streets around are deserted because there's a lot of roadwork going on (April 2016). At least half a dozen locals told me the obvious...I cannot see why they'd lie to us if there was a "second entrance"...the...More

Even if the main entrance is close, don't give up! Just go ahead to the secondary entrance and you can get into!
