Just visited over the Chinese New Year holiday with my family. Definitely worth a visit but our timing was poor, it was absolutely packed! That said its amazing to see so many people queuing to pray, mostly younger generation too. An attractive working temple but avoid the holiday season.

We visited this temple the weekend before the new year (which was probably a mistake). The whole front corridor was grey with smoke and it was raining ash from all of the burning of incense. It made the whole front of the temple unpleasant to visit, but I suppose that was mostly just bad timing. We really enjoyed the reclining... More

I walked to this temple from my hotel and was glad I did. A spiritual working temple and monastery in the heart of busy Shanghai. The jade buddha itself is beautiful - carved from a single piece of Jade and about 4 foot high.

The temple is very impressive for the fantastic traditional architechture amongst such a set of modern constructions, and for the climate of peace and faith it brings to visitors

Getting to the Jade Buddha felt like it was more on the outskirts of Shanghai as compared to other attractions but worth the visit. You pay for entry. Once inside you can see it is an operational temple with lots of incense burning to the Gods by locals. The statues inside are stunning and there are so many of them.... More

We took a cab there as the closest Metro station was a bit of a walk. Entrance fee of RMB20 per person. Remember to keep your ticket stub as there's a short write-up in English on the reverse, with a short history about the temple. Be far, one of my favourite temples in the city (the other being Long Hua... More

This place is definitely bustling! It was 20 yuans per person. You can really stroll through the temple at your leisure. I wish that there would have been some information about Buddhism since I'm not practicing. It was a great experience regardless!
