Perfect place to see in person something so different. Spend some time on watching locals praying, you will find yourself in wonderland. Do not miss it!

This was the only temple we got to visit in Shanghai and we enjoyed the experience. The temple is a very imposing structure with many buildings and huge wooden beams and high ceilings. The Buddhas and the Guardians of the Four Directions are imposing sculptures...More

Beautifully preserved and still functioning temple in the city center of Shang hai. The monks go about their business praying, chanting and studying. Not crowded. Very beautiful. Also served as a landmark for us to find our way back to where we were staying nearby....More

Peaceful place and not so crowded. Beautiful statues of Buddha, Bodhisattva and Deities. If there is spare time, visitors can pop by the Jing’an Park which is situated diagonally across the temple and have a short walk within and you can see the citizens having...More

This was a very nice temple to visit, but the 50 Yuan entrance is a bit steep. You can visit the Forbidden City for just 60Y Nicely turned out though. Make sure you see the 'stone' carved panels at the rear of the hall

The location is fantastic next to shopping centres with a park nearby. I felt it was over rated cause the Bell tower and Drum tower were closed so besides the silver Budda, Camphur Goddess of Mercy there wasn't much to see.

If you haven`t been into a temple before you would like it but I feel like I have seen it all before. The entrance ticket was 50rmb, we felt it was expensive for what we got. About 20minutes of looking around and some rooms weren`t...More

Not big fan to be charged to get inside since most temples in China are free, but I want to think that the entrance fee is to help the temple.

The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple,
while the main artery of excitement and entertainment
is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French
Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign
residents but displays a more commercial character.
Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and
trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing
Road, but areas off the busy street have the same
