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.

Beautiful temple. The surrounding gardens and the amazing structures inside are definitely worth the visit. This is a practicing temple so be respectful of the fact that people are worshiping. Pictures are not allowed of many of the idols. The it’s absolutely worth it

Pretty nice temple in comparison to all in Asia. Going through extensive renovation, you can literally smell new paint on the walls. However, the best part of the temple has nothing to do with the newness. Peculiarly, the most magnificent part of this temple is...More
