This Chinese Buddhist Temple hosts two jade Buddha statues imported from Burma, along with many other cultural relics. It is a peaceful refuge from the modern bustle of Shanghai, where monks may be seen and heard conducting Buddhist ceremonies.

I've have never been to a buddhist temple, so for me it was very nice seeing people praying all around. There are a lot of beatiful statues and altars to see.

A beautiful oasis within the hustle and bustle of Shanghai, open from 8:30 am. A beautiful Buddhist temple that has two Jade statues amongst a host of others. Can be reached by metro line 7, with an entrance fee of 20 RMB.

Loved visiting the temple just before it closed. Highly recommend ringing the bell. The surrounding gardens are beautiful. A must see for those interested in Buddhism.
