Surprised about the entrance fee for it. Many buddhas in different positions. Holy place for locals but just nice place for us to see.

We visited many Buddist sites on our trip to China and this was one of the best. As is the case with all the temples, the sculptures are impressive and the opportunity to watch believers practice their faith should not be missed.

Living in Shanghai, I have seen all the temples here, this one is definitely my favorite! It is quite big and way cheaper than Jing'an temple. Very beautiful!

The jade buddha temple in Shanghai is a good place to go whether you are Buddhist or not. The peaceful and transcendent atmosphere adds a kind of richness to our busy modern society.

It was remarkably quiet in here. Don't forget to dwell around the whole compound, including the restaurant, which is a little gem.

As others have said, this temple is a peaceful oasis in the middle of the bustle of Shanghai. It's easy to get to by metro, just a couple of blocks from the Jiangning Road metro station. Or just a 1.25 mile walk from Nanjing Road...More
