Garden of The Master Nets
During the Ming Dynasty, 500 years ago, Suzhou flourished as a place of refinement and retreat, attracting scholars and merchants who built themselves gardens to seek solitude in. Whilst the Garden of the Master of Nets is the smallest garden in Suzhou, it is also one of the most beautiful.
Hanshan Temple, literally "Cold Mountain Temple", is a Buddhist temple and monastery. It is located at the town of Fengqiao, about 5 kilometres west of the old city of Suzhou. The current name of the monastery derives from Hanshan, the legendary monk and poet.
