Re: Hanshan Temple (Han Shan Si)

Hanshan Temple was famous of its bell.  Once a poet called Zhangji who lost his examination for government official stopped at the river near Hanshan temple. His stayed in a boat which dropped on this river. He was sad and can't sleep. When in midnight, the bell "ding, ding,ding" reached to his ears,he felt more sad. So that he wrote a poem there called <枫桥夜泊>, it is very well-know to people. And the favor in the poem is so beautiful.
