Hanshan Temple , Suzhou

Located at the Fengqiao Town, 5 kilometers from Suzhou City, the Hanshan Temple was originally built during the reign of Tianjian in the Liang Dynasty, with a history of more than 1400 years. One of the most famous temples in the city, it has the most worshippers, with Chinese people from other parts of the country, and foreigners making pilgrimages to pray for good luck. The temple is famed in East Asia because of the well-known poem "A Night Mooring near Maple Bridge" written by Zhang Ji, a poet of the Tang Dynasty (AD 618-907).
