Jing’an temple is impressive from a distance but it’s worth a visit for RMB50 per person. The interior structure is mostly wood with very thick wooden pillars. The main hall houses a huge Buddha. The complex is a monastery and you can hear monks chanting.

When you enjoy the great Shanghai, sometimes you need to relax and give oxygen to your brain... here you have to go for that and for the nice architecture. Take time to visit all and think or pray. Enjoy this jewel.

In terms of visual pleasure, this temple hits the mark. Easy to get to on the metro. We thought that monks wandering around constantly on mobiles and having 100RMB notes so openly placed into their sleeves during a ceremony detracted from the expected authenticity of...More

The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple,
while the main artery of excitement and entertainment

Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign
