    Description
    Located in central Suzhou in the old town pedestrian zone, the temple was built on what was formerly the site of the residence of King Helu, the founder of Suzhou city. It was named a Daoist Temple in 1295. The main attraction is the Hall of Three Purities. The pedestrian Guanqian Street shopping zone fronts the temple so it’s a fun place to walk around.
