Hanshan (cold mountain) Temple is forever remembered by generations of Chinese since the Song Dynasty as the inspiration of a beautiful traveler's poem. The temple was under repair and veiled behind scaffolding like the Washington DC dome when we visited. It was still a nice peaceful stroll on the grounds. This temple is located right next to the Grand Canal attraction, a magnificent Chinese invention that facilitated transportation of cargo between north and south China. Our Chinese friend spent a day taking us here from Shanghai to tour Suzhou highlights including the Jinji (golden chicken) lake new resort development and the water town, all within a few miles from city center. What we saw convinced us that Suzhou is a really beautiful city.

It's a Suzhou icon as there is a famous poem from Tang dynasty described it. The bell tower has a huge bell, and the sound is loud and but brings peace. Everyone can try to hit the huge bell for CNY 10.

The main temple and Guangyin temple have beautiful statues for worship.

Interesting to visit one of the most famous Buddhist temples in Chinese history. The center pagoda was under construction, which was built in 1995.

This attraction also has a bell tower, which dates back to the Tang Dynasty. Once inside the bell tower, one can ring the bell three times for 10 Renminbi. The bell is the largest in the world.

The Buddhist temples are located on the other side of the park. They offer peace and tranquility. Pictures aren't allowed inside the temples.
