Suzhou stands at No. 85 South Square and is within 10 minutes from the Liuyuan Station. You can ask the local people if it is not difficult to walk to the Xiyuan Temple in Suzhou. It was built in the Yuan Dynasty and flourished in the Ming and Qing Dynasties when the builder of the Liuyuan Temple, Qing Taipu Temple, changed to a private garden. Now the temple is the only temple garden in Suzhou City on the 15th of the first lunar month. The temple is full of incense and fire. It is full of tourists. Anyway, I haven't seen a monk's vegetarian noodles very delicious, 10 yuan a bowl, ranking the elders, cost-effective high-quality bags are also said to be good, but it takes a long time to line up and never eat! It is said that a very effective temple will come next time.
Xiyuan Temple is not far from Suzhou Liuyuan. It can take bus to Xiyuan or Xiyuan East to Xiyuan. The ticket is 25 yuan, and incense outside can not be taken to the temple. Xiyuan Temple is a very effective temple with popular wishes of local people in Suzhou, where they can pray for blessings. On the first and fifteenth day of the Spring Festival, there are many pilgrims coming to burn incense on the first day of the Spring Festival. On the birthday and anniversary of each Bodhisattva, the temple also holds a law meeting. There are many pigeons in the free-life pool behind the temple. The scenery is very good. There are vegetable halls in the temple, on the west side of the Temple of Heaven, and on the south side of the Hall of 500 Arhats. There are only three kinds of noodles, Ruyi noodles, Luohanzhai noodles and Guanyin noodles, which are only 10 yuan per capita. Outside the temple, there are meritorious virtues, old-fashioned Suzhai Museum. The price is slightly higher than that in the temple. The vegetable chicken, "sweet and sour ribs" is delicious.
Suzhou Xiyuan Temple, a very quiet garden temple, basically no tourists, tickets 25 yuan, began to feel very expensive and did not want to enter, did not expect to take a photo like Zhuozhengyuan is all the masses, the entrance is two bell towers, to Tianwang Temple, and then to Daxiong Palace, through the main hall of the temple, the back garden is very beautiful, Huxinting Pavilion many white pigeons, flying together with great momentum, is the backyard I have visited the most. Beautiful temples.
At the end of November and the beginning of December, it is the best time to come to Xiyuan Temple. Ginkgo biloba, red leaves and pine trees in the temple constitute the most beautiful scenery. This time I went in early December, a little late, and several big ginkgo leaves in the temple were all gone. But the red leaves are beautiful. The Ginkgo biloba at the temple gate is also very good. You can get an annual card for fifty yuan and come twice at the same price as a regular ticket. Now in order to protect the environment, his family no longer sells incense candles, there will be three incense gifts at the door. However, it is estimated that candles can be brought with them.
Very charming temple, the day to go to feel that people are not many, the scenery inside is very beautiful, the monk's service is also very pious, see a monk climbing up to make a long light... Here is a temple garden, monks wearing gowns are particularly beautiful, the first time found that monks are also very handsome, haha... In the garden behind, the turtle is still very interesting.
Tickets are required for entry. There is a memorial archway in front of the temple. The river near Fengqiao Road leads directly to Shantang Street. The road from Xiyuan Temple to Hanshan Temple is very beautiful with few visitors. If physical strength is available, walking along the river is recommended.
Jiezhuanglu Temple, whose main house is a temple, is situated in the west of Liuyuan, also known as the West Garden. At present, it is a very important religious place in Suzhou. The garden area in the temple is a very important model of Buddhist temple gardens, which has considerable reference value.
Quiet temples! It happened to be a small law club! Originally, there are still so many devout believers. It is said here that there were two spotted catfish. Yes, one was silent and one was lost. Hey! Treasures are hard to keep. It is hoped that the species will be preserved.
