Picturesque gardens, national-style pagodas and temples, interesting museums and cultural establishments are the main sights of present Suzhou. The ancient Guanqian Street is one of the most picturesque in the city. It was laid out more than half a century ago. The 760-meter-long street accommodates the city's oldest shops and restaurants. Given the fact that they are all housed in beautiful historic buildings, walking down the street becomes an even more interesting event. When it comes to outstanding historic buildings, Hanshan Temple deserves special attention. Built directly on the Grand Canal in the early 6th century, it got its name in honor of a monk who lived in the temple. Unfortunately, the temple did not survive in its original form to our days - it has been repeatedly rebuilt and radically changed its appearance. The last major reconstruction of the Hanshan took place in the middle of the 17th century. Its look has not been changed much since then.
