Jade Buddha Temple, Shanghai
(3.9/5 based on 900+ reviews on the web)
An active Buddhist monastery, Jade Buddha Temple contains many rare cultural relics and works of art. As you enter the peaceful Grand Hall, notice many different statues adorned by precious metals. For a symbolic fee, you can enter the temple's northern section to observe the main attraction, two jade statues of Buddha--a sitting and a recumbent one--each decorated with emeralds and agates. At the temple's eastern end, you can find a restaurant serving tasty local dishes for a moderate price.

  • Nice temple between tower blocks, part of Chinese history with Jade budha in first floor. Just a few visitors and even less chinese. Good to see.

  • It was amazing for the experience Lacked the impact and culture of the many many unbelievable places around Shanghai. I really love the place and wish to return again and again. ( From the cultural / religious point of view I am sure is of utmost importance ) This place from a tourist point of view gave little information. I really don't mean any disrespect. Love Shanghai
  • Two incredible statues from Burma brought to Shanghai in 1882. Check it out! Be sure to sacrifice a coin on the brass dragon!
  • Great temple and very impressive. Entrance is 10rmb.
  • Quite dificult to find, but when you are in it is a very nice place. Lot's of Koi Carp.
  • A bit out of the way and hard to find but a nice little excursion. By no means is it large and if you have been to other temples in China you may find it underwhelming.
