Slightly off the beaten path, this large complex should be THE must see for anyone visiting Suzhou. If you come around 3:30PM, you'll find it almost empty and there's enough time to visit the truly impressive temples and gardens, before the monks and priests start...More

Xiyuan Temple is kind of far from the other attractions but you can take Suzhou tour bus for 3 RMB to get there. You can find monks in this temple.

This temple is surrounded by the modern pedestrian shopping district north of ganjian road. It is a fascinating entrance into the symbolism of the Taoist pantheon, with scores of taoist deities lining the walls of the interior. The three statues at the front of the...More

An interesting Taoist temple in the middle of town which has been recently restored, and is worth a visit. Many beautiful statues inside, and only 10 RMB entry fee.
