Hanshan Temple is an active place of Buddhist worship and is important to Suzhou's local community. The temple was named after a 7th century poet-monk who came to stay there. Its dark roof tiles, yellow walls and picturesque bridges are very attractive.

In recent years, the temple has drawn crowds at New Year for the bell-tolling ceremony. Tickets are keenly sought-after, and gaining one is considered to bring good fortune.
