"Hanshan Temple" Suzhou Off The Beaten Path Tip by yipsufen
Suzhou Off The Beaten Path: 12 reviews and 16 photos
The temple became famous because of a poem which reads:
"The moon goes down, crows cry under a frosty sky. Dimly lit fishing boats, beneath maples sadly lie. Beyond the Suzhou walls, the Temple of Cold Hill chimes bells, which reaches my boat, breaking the midnight still."
The sound of bells here is believed to eliminate one's worries. This attraction is popular among Japanese tourists. There are traditional activities to welcome the New Year on New Year's Eve.
