Next agenda is Panmen Gate. Panmen Gate is located on the southwest corner of the Grand Canal, Suzhou. With a history of 2,500 years, this city gate is the most completely preserved part of the ruins of the ancient city of Suzhou. The architecture of the wall is truly amazing. The gate is not only one, but many and includes an entire complex of both land gates and water gates. Therefore it is also often called the "Land and Water Gate". Stepping onto the top of the gate, you can see the Wumen Gate Bridge and the Auspicious Light Pagoda. Together, they are popularly known as the Three Scenes at Panmen Gate.

After lunch, pay a visit to Hanshan Temple. Hanshan temple's contemplative park-like atmosphere, its refined architecture and especially its famous bell have inspired both serenity and poetry since its founding 1,500 years ago. The temple houses a remarkable collection of stone tablets etched with Buddhist sutras and Chinese poetry. The temple, considered to be one of the 10 greatest temples in China, owes its fame to a classic Chinese poem called "A Night Mooring by Maple Bridge".
