Set in a bustling area around Nanchan Street in the ancient downtown quarter of Wuxi, Nanchan Temple of Wuxi serves as one of the most important Buddhist temple complexes south of the Yangtse River. Enter its impressive gate towering over a bustling pedestrian zone and you can climb a seven-story pagoda for a sweeping panorama. Actively visited by locals, this sixth-century temple provides many monk ceremonies and activities to watch. It also has antique stalls with Chinese memorabilia, such as stamps and coins. Take a boat ride on the canal or observe the slow, fashionable life on the water lane along the canal. A nearby market with some 500 shops makes a good spot to buy souvenirs and offers great opportunities for eating.

無錫に到着した日に夜景を見ました。夜のクルージングに参加するために、船着き場まで行く前に、参道周辺を散策しました。翌日は、がっつり入場して内部も観光しましたが、やはり夜景の方が素晴らしかったと思います。お寺内部はどこも大差なく（笑）、中国らしいお寺でした。 more »I saw the night view on the day I arrived in Wuxi. In order to participate in the night cruising, we took a walk around the approach before going to the pier. The next day, i went to see the inside, but I think the night view was still better. The inside of the temple was not much different (laughs), and it was a temple that seemed to be Chinese.
Nice shopping experience nearby.
