Jing’an Temple, like any other typical Chinese monastery, is preserved in traditional Chinese architecture. It is an ancient temple with a history and houses different Buddha in multiple shrines, and mainly attracts devout local Buddhists to pray. There are lesser tourists in this temple compared with Jade Buddha Temple. The temple is generally well preserved, though slightly aged. Like other temples, there is an entrance fee of RMB 50 per person, and additional charges for the purchase of incense for prayer. This is a peaceful temple, and I chanced upon 2-3 Caucasians during my trip here. Though there are two levels to this temple, its actually quite a small space and one can finish touring within less than an hour. This temple is not really that photogenic but its worth visiting once. There is a small souvenir shop beside this temple too, but we didn’t fancy anything there. At the time of our visit, there was a mass selling of mooncakes at RMB 9 per mooncake, and we decided to purchase 18 of it back home. Jing’an Temple is located just outside of Jing'an Temple train station in the midst of modern high-rise offices, and is extremely easy to find. There is a mouth-watering four-storey vegetarian restaurant called Jen Dow vegetarian restaurant that serves awesome and affordable vegetarian meals just next to this temple. It is highly recommended to dine-in to this vegetarian restaurant after prayer for a complete Buddhist experience!

I popped up th eroad on my first venture and found this Jing'an Temple, Th design here is amazing, the details are truly impressive, built in 276AD. Burn incense, pray and throw money into the the lucky Incense burner in the court yard. Shops around the side have some great tea sets on offer

This magnificent temple, built in 276 AD is incredibly beautiful. The architecture is magnificent; a beautiful temple with a courtyard, where worshippers burn incense and pray. It's a sacred place, and feels so. There's something to see everywhere - the gorgeous chairs where people place coins on their edges, the buddhas, the golden carp and elephants that adorn the buildings. In the middle of bustling Shanghai it's a place of great beauty and peace.

We been a couple time there and it is again and again very impressive. So in my opinion there is no need to book a tour for visiting. Just go there and explore it by yourself!
