Visited but did not go into the temple. Too many tourists, the place seem more for commercial purpose than a temple.

If you have a choice, please avoid this temple. It has nothing worth visiting, and be really careful of the tourist trap.

Went to see a temple but ended up in a tourist market, good place for buying trinkets and gifts for friends and family, pretty busy but a fun experience none the less.

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!
