This temple is not so big but very famous in Shanghai, even in south-east China. It is very old and very classic. Most tourist from other part of China may like go visit and have short pray there to request for good luck or good health.

Beware this Taoist temple. A part of it was undergoing renovations when we visited a few days ago (23rd dec 2013) but it was still open. When we entered, a man immediately handed my father and I joss sticks to pray. After praying, he gestured toward the donation box and my dad put 10yuan in. The same guy then pointed... More

This was my second visit to Chenghuang temple and it was more interesting than my first. If you enjoy haggling this is a great place to visit. Besides the restaurants and food stands, I don't think any of the merchants had fixed pricing. While there I witnessed colleagues try and deal for anything from small trinkets to hand made wooden...

It is a very typical temple where you could see the towngod and some other Taoist gods. If you were lucky, you would see some religious activities there.

I have been coming to this place every time I visit Shanghai. The attraction for me is mainly the architectural buildings and the steamed dumplings. The place is flooded with people from locals and foreigners... beware of pick-pocket!

Zhujiajiao is famous for its steam meat, tranditinal architectures and Jiangnan style custom. Walking along the lanes, a good smell always attracts ur stomache, sounds of business men let u slow down ur steps, and strong Jiangnan style features make u taste this place again and again.

We had a great time walking around this area. Looking at other tourists and locals doing their shopping. We got a couple of stamps that they said were Jade. We had our names in Chinese characters engraved. It was a nice experience to have a souvenir from an ancient artform.
