Little is known of dates* and biographical data on Han Shan. It is thought that he lived during the early Tang Dynasty in and around Tiantaishan in Zhejiang. About 40 km east of Tiantaishan is a cliff named Hanyan with a large cave where he is said to have lived. The Guoqinsi at the foot of Tiantaishan is the site of some of his poems. He cavorted there with his buddy 豐干 Fenggan.

* For our purposes we have selected the date 700 to locate him on our TimeMap.
