Its not that you will not find temples around China. You will. In fact a lot. For me personally its never enough. My major reason lies with the beautiful artworks that go into the temple interiors. In this regards this temple is beautiful and definitely worth a visit but then again you have been paying visit to a lot of... More

You can take a picture of the Jade Budda but there are plenty more things to see and do.I thought it was worth the cab ride, it not the biggest Temple still nice especially for the money. So I say go

This temple is very nice. The Jade Buddha there is exceptional. I have been there several times with visitors to Shanghai. If you are not familiar with the city, take a taxi to get you there. It's well worth the visit!

It was interesting to see because of the huge piece of jade. Other than this (and a small restaurant close by), not something very memorable.

Carved out of one piece, perhaps the only one of this type out of Myanmar. A must see. Other impressive Buddhas in the same temple in the heart of Shanghai

Well, you do not need to be a genius to work out from the title piece that I did not enjoy this temple at all. It is at the end of some very narrow streets that run perpendicular off Nanjing Road West, and has the misfortune of having a building site decide to land right next to it. The temple... More

This venue is a place of worship for local people and it's important to a recognise the purpose of this venue. The local people are very accommodation accepting that tourists wish to visit their temple. Incense burns in the courtyard where local people come to pray openly in front of you. There is a reclining white jade Buddha to view... More

This is a great temple, very popular and colorful. It is more compact than Jing'an Temple and has more of a historic feel. The entry costs 20 yuan; an additional 10 yuan is charged for the chamber of the Jade Buddha. The latter is highly recommended: the statues are of high artistic value, and there is a gallery of beautiful... More

I spent only 6 days in Shanghai with my boss, we were there for an exhibition, and we had very few time to visit the city. We decided to go to the Jade Buddha temple and it was Amazing. I really advise it to all foreign visitors: it must be seen once in a lifetime!

I agree it is not so easy to go and visit this temple. But the visit worth it. This temple is small, very well kept. And you can see the small Jad Buddha, not very common for what I know. There are not so many people, and the chinese visitors are doing their duties. Really good place to visit. You... More
