Jade Buddha Temple, Shanghai

Jade Buddha Temple (Chinese: 玉佛禅寺) is venerable and famous Buddhist temple in the modern Shanghai city. It was founded in 1882 to house two jade Buddha statues imported to the city from Burma by sea. The temple was destroyed during the revolution that overthrew the Qing Dyansty. Fortunately the statues were saved and a new temple was built on the present site in 1928. No matter you are a Buddhist or not, it is a worthy place to go, which would bring you some peace in heart.

The two jade statures are a sitting Buddha (1.95 metres tall, 3 tonnes), and a smaller reclining Buddha representing Buddha’s death. They are not only cultural relics but are outstanding artworks. The temple also contains a much larger reclining Buddha made of marble, donated from Singapore in 1989. Moreover there are many other ancient paintings and Buddhist scriptures distributed in the different halls here.

A pubilic restaurant serves inside the temple at the eastern edge. It serves a range of vegetable noodles, the most popular of which is ‘double mushroom noodles’ (shuang gu mian).
