North Temple Pagoda (Bĕisìtă)

北塔寺

North Temple Pagoda (Bĕisìtă) Review

One of the symbols of ancient Suzhou, this temple towers over the Old City. The complex has a 1,700-year history, dating to the Three Kingdoms Period. The wooden pagoda has nine levels; you can climb as high as the eighth level for what might be the best view of Suzhou. Within the grounds are the Copper Buddha Hall and Plum Garden, which, built in 1985, lacks the history and complexity of Suzhou's other gardens.
