Owner description: This Chinese Buddhist Temple hosts two jade Buddha statues imported from Burma, along with many other cultural relics. It is a peaceful refuge from the modern bustle of Shanghai, where monks may be seen and heard conducting Buddhist ceremonies.

The Jade Buddha temple is very interesting and worth the visit. There is plenty of history on the religion and the Jade Buddhas are worth the additional payment.

The temple is great and there are many different budhas that are truelly amazing, but there are many shops just around the statues. There also is a nice carpa pond.

Well worth visiting the Jade Temple to see the Monks and the spectacular Jade Buddha. This peaceful area shows real people and offers a welcome respite to the hectic Shanghai area. There is a shop with really nice items at very reasonable prices. There is no pressure to buy and all the proceeds go to the temple.

This is more of a tourist attraction than a place of worship, its rather expensive visiting, but since it has to be maintained, paying for the entrance its o.k.The original Jade Buddha is the smaller statue, the new & bigger statue is made out of marble. The Buddha statues were brought to China from Burma in 1882. It was a new experience. Well maintained place.

there is a really nice artificial pond inside the temple with tons of colored fish... its quite expensive to feed the fish (40 rmb for a really small bag) ... once you kneel down and stretch your hand to the fish ... they will think you have food (even if your hand is empty, just act like you have food to give) and they will come for you and keep fighting just to reach your hand ... let someone take a shot of you with the fish... quite memorable ... a bit far from the nearest subway station, take a taxi

PS : (( DO NOT TRY TO FEED BISCUITS OR BREAD TO THE FISH .... THEY SCARE THEM OFF"
