Hanshan Temple is a small temple. It isn't the birthplace of Buddhism, but it becomes well-known because of a mere poem. The Chinese are familiar with the bells of Hanshan Temple because they have traversed Chinese civilization for more than 1500 years. Foreigners are familiar with the bells as well because the poem, "A Night Mooring by Maple Bridge", makes it well-known. Hanshan Temple and the poem complement each other. The bells and poem of Hanshan stretch beyond thousands of years.
