Depending on how much time, you can always have a look at it. It is a lively Taoist temple. Compared to the other site, I would recommend to put it quite low in the priority list.

Not worth paying the price to enter the temple. When visit Tiger Hill, there will be much more worth..The area is much more worth for the to go for shopping spree rather than visitng the temple

This is one of the prominent Taoist shrines of Jiangsu, and Suzhou's only surviving wooden temple from the Sung Dynasty. Dating to the late 12 the century, this venerable old timber temple has a time-weathered look (though it has been restored at times). Today, it...More
