Lion Grove Garden (Shizilin) @ SuZhou

After visiting HanShan Temple or "Cold Mountain Temple", we head to Lion Grove Garden (Shizilin), as that day was SuZhou public holiday the place is full of tourist from inside and outside.

Lion Grove Garden (Shizilin) is located on 23 Yuanlin Road, in the northeast of Suzhou-a city with profound cultural background and convenient developmental advantages. Lion Grove Garden is one of the four most famous and representative gardens of ancient classical style in Suzhou City. The other three are Blue Wave Pavilion (Canglangta), Lingering Garden (Liuyuan) and Humble Administrator's Garden (Zhuozhengyuan).

the place

Built in 1342 during the Yuan Dynasty (1279-1368) by Monk Tianru and a group of Zen Buddhist disciples as a memorial of their master-Monk Zhongfeng. Lion Grove Garden was donated to People's Republic of China. From then on, the garden entered a steady and well-protected period.

After lunch we head to the next destination YangZhou which took us about 5 hours drive to spend the night stay tune.
