4.2/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web
Pay a visit to Longhua Temple, a complex known for its ancient seven-story pagoda. Though many of the temple buildings are reconstructions of earlier designs, the site as a whole has retained the Song dynasty architectural style it gained when rebuilt in 977 CE, with the overall layout following the Sangharama Five-Hall Style common to Chan Buddhist temples during the period. The pagoda's upturned eaves, decorative balconies, and ornate banisters have been repaired over the years, but its brick base and body date all the way back to the 10th century CE. Join the worshippers or simply watch and take in the atmospheric scene. Add Longhua Temple and other attractions to your Shanghai trip itinerary using our Shanghai holiday planner.

  • More impressive than its Jing'An cousin, but a little harder to get to. The statues and magnitude of the place are just more impressive than Jing'An. 
  • This temple explains in a more detail manner the life of Buda and the differences between the Chinesse Buda with the Indian Buda, its some place your must see in Shanghai 
  • #China does not respect #Tibet and #Human #Rights. #Shame on china
  • 龙华寺渐渐成了上海人跨年的好去处,撞钟祈福成为了一种流行,每逢初一十五香火更是旺盛,如果对佛教比较信仰,推荐当天中午在龙华寺里吃素斋,来回交通都非常方便。
  • Very good ... As always in Chinese Metro stations lack the proper exit signs toward the tourist sites but in this case it is easy ... Just across the street. Very nice Temple ... To see
