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.

Very impressive Jade Budha. The temple is all Budha. Nice architecture. Surprising to see a religion in China

This place was a bit unexpected. It was gorgeous inside. Lots of pagoda style buildings. Many large Buddhas in many buildings. There are a couple of jade ones that are amazing as well. Be prepared, this is an actual temple so some people are there...More

We visited this temple with a tour group. The atmosphere is peaceful and serene. You can watch the monks and devotees offering prayers to the Buddha. It was built in 1882 to enshrine two Jade Buddha statues brought from Burma (Myanmar), and renovated later. It...More

My friend and I came on our own. It’s easy to get to via Metro, but the complex itself - while gorgeous - is hard to navigate. We saw lots of western tourists wandering around looking for the Jade Buddha. Hint: it’s behind the grand...More

This is a place every Foreigner must see and visit in China to understand part of the Chinese faith and way of thinking but also admire how the past is integrated in the modern China with the forest of skyscrapers next to the temple.

Keep about one hour time. It may be a good idea to just sit and relax. There are various forms of Buddha which are interesting to note. It will be good if you read a bit about the temple and visit. Will give a better... More
