    Description
    Guxu Men, also known as Xu Men gate, is a part of the remains of the ancient city wall that was originally built in the Yuan Dynasty. It preserves traces of the restoration that was done on the wall in the Ming and Qing Dynasty. It is an important aid in the study of the history of Suzhou and also one of the most important historical and cultural relics remaining in the Suzhou Canglang district region. In 2003, restoration to return the wall to its Ming Dynasty glory was carried out jointly by Suzhou Municipal Government and (Suzhou) Canglang District Government. During the repair, the adjacent Baihua Zhou area was developed as well. The Baihua Zhou Park covers an area of over 40 thousand square meters was also built at this time. Other venues built or renewed during that period include the Wu Zixu Memorial, Jiaying Hall, Suzhou Municipal Planning Exhibition Hall and Canglang District Youth Palace. A series of folk and cultural events are usually held in this area during big Chinese holidays like the Lantern Festival and the Dragon Boat Festival. In 2004, the 27th World Heritage Convention was held at the Municipal Planning Exhibition Hall. In 2005, the Suzhou International Tourism Festival, China Intangible Cultural Heritage Protection Forum and many other events were held in the Guxu Men area. Guxu Men was also chosen by the CCTV to be the filming location of a TV show which showed the beauty and the history of Suzhou to people all over China.

    景点介绍
    鉴证姑苏历史的城池——古胥门。胥门古代又称姑胥门,现存城门为元代重建,保存了明清两代的重修痕迹,是研究苏州城池历史的重要实物例证,也是沧浪现存最重要的历史文化遗迹之一。2003年始,苏州市及沧浪区政府联合对这一段古城墙进行抢修,最大程度的恢复了明代风貌。在对古胥门城墙进行修复的同时,对古胥门城墙所在的百花洲地区进行了整体开发。先是对接官厅与百花洲段进行改造,建成了占地四万多平方米的百花洲公园,接着又改建和新建了伍子胥纪念园、嘉应会馆、苏州规划展示馆和沧浪区少年宫,将附近景观连成片。每年正月十五闹元宵、端午节等重大节日,沧浪区都要在此举办一系列民俗节庆和文化活动。2004年第27届世界遗产大会在万年桥下的市规划展示馆召开。2005年以来,苏州国际旅游节、苏州市“四进”工程启动仪式、中国非物质文化遗产保护论坛、中国苏州民间文化展示周相继在此开幕。央视“绝对挑战”到苏州拍摄也选择伍子胥纪念园作为外景,展示了具有2500多年古城的古韵今风。
