20th 'Oriental Water City' festival about to commence

The Baimajian (White Horse Gully) and Longchi (Dragon Pool) resorts, located in the western part of Suzhou’s high-tech development zone, are an important part of the city’s western tourist region because of the area’s cultural heritage, which dates back to the Warring-State Period (475~221 BC), and the awesome mountains and forests provide some of the best moments while in seclusion.

Two lions guard the entrance leading to Zijin Temple in Wuzhong district of southwestern Suzhou. The temple gains its reputation not only for being built in the Tang Dynasty (618-907) and remaining well-preserved throughout the years of ups and downs, but more due to its spectacular colorfully painted clay sculptures of arhats. The arhat statues display the superb art techniques of Chinese sculptors from over 800 years ago. [Photo from WeChat: suzhouvisit]
