Jade Buddha Temple, Shanghai

(4/5 based on 1,000+ 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. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Jade Buddha Temple and many more Shanghai attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Shanghai itinerary planner.

  • Nice old complex of temples with plenty of Budhas. Very valued statue of Budha fully made of jade. Easy to reach by subway Line 2  more »
  • Although this Buddha is very beautiful, it is not sufficiently highlighted. Moving from one building to another without very well understand the logic.

  • Admission for 20 and nice to walk around. Preferred this in front of jing'an when there were fewer people here. We got to experience tranquillity in a different way. Relatively easy to go from the Metro and fun to see another part of Shanghai (we live in the city at Nanjing road). Here we passed massa fruit traders and watched old Chinese play chess on the street as we walked towards the temple. The luncheon at the temple area was delicious, vegetarian and cost only 15-20. We were the only Westerners in the dining room, which perhaps says something about the quality? ;)

  • 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.
