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.

I recommend visiting the Jade Buddha Temple if you are new to China. There are a lot of opportunities for great photos (mind the areas where this is not allowed!). The tea shop inside offers a small variety of teas and cookies which are beautifully...More

Beautifully decorated interior rooms where Buddha art is viewed. Lovely architecture and courtyard. Incense can be bought and burned in large fire kettles while you give homage to the east/west/north/south in a personal ceremony that brightens your soul.

Believing or not, you have to visit this temple just to see the sculpture of Buddha. Unbelievable art!

The complex of buildings is quiet interesting and particularly the image of the lying buda. It is one of the few temples you may visit in Shanghai
