Jade Buddha Temple, Shanghai

(4/5 based on 950+ 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.

  • This is the whole complex of the old zadudowy discover the many treasures of China. A truism is that you have to visit, because you have to, the attraction features really many things interesting but worthy of multiple reflection and doing.

  • They say it's one of the very few temples saved Mao's time, and to see why how to attract tourists, it is really half of the faithful who here go to burn incense. I also saw a woman celebrating a religious function, but they said it wasn't a Priestess, rather a faithful who fulfilled one vote. The giant Buddha is really impressive. Inside the temple there is a shop selling jewelry and jade sculpture.

  • 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.
