Unlike many of the gardens in Suzhou, this one seems to be relatively little-known, as there were only a few other people there when our tour group visited.

The pagoda is impressive, the temple is interesting, the landscaping is lovely.

This small city of Suzhou has so many nice places to visit. This is one of them, you don't want to miss it.

Found this place on our way back to the station. Lovely place to walk around with a large Pagoda and Buddha statue. Very quiet and not crowded. We spent about 30 minutes here.

This is a must see garden namely for its pagoda. The garden is quaint but has that classic Chinese feel. You can't walk up into the pagoda but you can walk around the ground floor. I went there in the middle of winter when it was showing.

This free temple/museum/gardens is a highlight of Suzhou. It's deceptive in how much there is here, as at first glance it appears to be just the pagoda. There are in fact several temples and extensive gardens. It's also not been recently renovated, so you get a far more authentic atmosphere and experience. Sadly, the pagoda itself is not accessible other than the ground floor.

Took a stop on a walk around town to look at the pagoda and the temple dedicated to Guanyin - the Goddess of Mercy.

Statue of Buddha in the main courtyard, and thereafter the pagoda - open from bottom only - not for climbing. Traditional to encircle the pagoda in a clockwise direction. There is moon gateway to the right of the pagoda that leads to the temple. No information in English but plenty of shade to get out of the sun.

We were here eight years ago and hadn't planned to return, but by chance our metro stop exited directly in front of the site, line 4, Beisita stop. There was no metro at that time. We were happy to revisit the site and the memories. Entry was free and we were given a brochure with information in English which I didn't remember receiving the last time. The information added value. The Buddha statue and temple were very interesting and the garden in the right corner, beautiful. We spent 50 minutes here before taking the short walk to the Humble Administrator's Garden.

See the review for Beisita. The garden and temple around the pagoda are very pleasant. You cannot enter the pagoda.

Only takes 15 minutes to walk around the whole site. Very interesting and well preserved. Across the street from the Silk museum, visit them as a pair.

By chance we entered this Pagoda. What a good experience. It looks a bit abandoned, but a the very end of the garden you will spot a tea house. Just enter, drink a tea (we asked for advice) and enjoy an hour of heaven's peace! Understand us well. There are more colorful garden, the water is not very clean, but the silence ...
