Wenshan Temple(文山寺)

Brief Introduction of Wenshan Temple

Wenshan Temple is the only nunnery in Suzhou with a history of more than 800 years. With Taohuawu behind it and Suzhou downtown lying ahead, the Southern Song Dynasty (420-589 AD) nunnery also combines Wenshan Temple, Chaoyin Temple and Yunlin Temple. The temple was changed into Bhikkuni Bodhimanda in 1958 and opened to the public in 1990, becoming the only Bodhimanda – place of enlightenment – for Buddhist nuns and a Buddhist tourist resort in Suzhou.

The 2,200-square-meter temple complex is well laid out with magnificent palaces and sacred figures of Buddha. A statue of Sakyamuni and the Holy Triad of the West stands in Mahavira Palace, while a jade statue of Guan Yin draws visitors to Jingye Hall. The Taisho Tripitaka, a definitive text on Chinese Buddhist law, is kept in the Depository of Buddhist Texts.

How to get to Wenshan Temple

1. Metro: take Line 2 and get off Shilu station
2. Bus route: take bus No. 31, 32, 33, 88, 146 and get off Zhongshi Qiao station (Zhongshi Bridge)
