I think most people know that Hanshan Temple is the source of this poem: the moon falls in the sky and the fire is on the river. The Hanshan Temple outside Gusu City, the night and half bells to the passenger ship.
This time I came to Gusu City, it was in the spring rain. When I went out in the morning, I needed to use a foreigner to wrap my body. The air is damp. There are very few people on the way to Hanshan Temple. There are still piles of winter without falling. Residual leaves.
is in this misty encounter with Hanshan Temple, the river outside the temple quietly flowing through the stone bridge, the tall red candle exudes its light and heat. Probably because it is not a holiday, there are very few tourists in the temple, and we can take a leisurely stroll here.
Come to the copy room in the temple, we have quietly copied a good luck in a quiet atmosphere due to sufficient time, and we are willing to be auspicious.
I like this kind of participatory way of visiting, not perfunctory, not taking the plunge, and the impression here is even more profound. The ticket price of
Hanshan Temple is 20 yuan, half price for students, the temple is relatively small, and you can walk around in 40 minutes.
When you come to beautiful Suzhou, why not turn Suzhou around.
Come to Suzhou's Hanshan Temple, located in the western suburbs of Suzhou City. It was built in the Southern Dynasties and has a history of more than 4,000 years. It belongs to the Linji Monastery in Zen Buddhism. There are many ancient monuments in the temple. There are stone inscriptions by Zhang Jishi, Hanshan, stone carvings, Wen Zhengming and Tang Yins inscriptions. Hanshan Temple is a famous blessing destination. Every year on December 31, Hanshan Temple will hold a bell-crossing ceremony and ring the bell 108. In the temple of
, there is a poem monument written by the famous scholar Yu Yu in the late Qing Dynasty, as well as the high mountains, the stone statues and their legends. Deceive me, insult me, laugh at me, light me, yell at me, wicked me, lie to me, how to deal with it? Just bear him, let him, let him, avoid him, respect him, ignore him, after ten years, You look at him!"
Hanshan Temple is famous for its bells. Every year except the sunset or New Year's Day night, Hanshan Temple will hold a ringing ceremony and knock down 108. Each time represents a trouble, after listening to the bell, the troubles of the next year will go with the wind. It is said that the Tang Dynasty poet Zhang Ji night ported Fengqiao, listening to the bell in the passenger ship, but also because of repeated trials, listening to people also came to sweep away troubles.
In addition to listening to the bell, Hanshan Temple visitors can also experience the ringing bell. There will be an extra charge of 10 yuan for ringing the clock and 20 tickets for Hanshan Temple. The clock is spectacular, and every time it is knocked, it is shocking!
📍Hanshan Temple, Suzhou
Hanshan Temple is also called “cold mountain temple”. It’s a Buddhist temple in Suzhou. This is one of my favorite temple. Even though I’m not a temple person, but I just like this temple. I like it because it’s just simple. Dominated by yellow and red. Not much decoration. It’s just simple and beautiful. I came here in December. It’s already cold enough and the leaves fell from the trees. The color of the leaves matched the temple (see my third pict). What a pretty combination
